Your Images

Shoalhaven Libraries ‘Images.Shoalhaven’ collection consists of photographs, slides and negatives donated to the library showing the Shoalhaven as it was and is. Images to view are of landscapes, streetscapes, buildings and natural features.

To increase the Images.Shoalhaven collection with both historical and contemporary pictures, Shoalhaven Libraries always welcomes the donation from the public of copies of their local ‘historical’ snaps. The types of photos we are looking for are of the Shoalhaven area whose subject matter includes:

  • Events/Parades/Ceremonies
  • Streetscapes
  • Buildings (existing and gone)
  • Pioneering families
  • Pre-urban development shots (farms/scrub where now shops/suburbs are built)
  • Natural Disasters/Bizarre Weather (floods, droughts, dust storms, bushfires, mice plagues etc).

Images are scanned and returned to the owner. The library does not retain the physical photograph unless desired. With the help of the larger community the Images.Shoalhaven site can continue to provide a historical record of the lives and times of the Shoalhaven. It is intended that images on this database will be used for general viewing, private study or research, but may not be duplicated, modified or used for any other purpose without expressed written permission of the copyright holder. Australian Commonwealth legislation protects images in this collection under the Copyright Act 1968.
