A century of images from the Australian media, beginning with the first photograph ever used in an Australian newspaper: a train derailment in 1888. Included in this book of unforgettable images are: the building of the Sydney Harbour Bridge; the dole queues of the Great Depression; the going to war and coming home; the devastation of Cyclone Tracy; heroes and villains, disasters and rescues – all of Australia’s yesterdays.¬† This is an excellent publication, in a day and age when the darkroom has largely vanished¬† from the newspaper offices and negative libraries are disappearing. Winton Irving spent 15 years compiling this collection of Australia’s history; before his retirement he was one of Sydney’s leading newspaper photographers.
