Picture South Perth

In the Federation of Australian Historical Societies e-Bulletin No. 126 - 28 June 2014 we have been alerted to a new  digital collection.

Copied below is the notification:

The City of South Perth recently launched a digital collection of historic images online; this project only went live a few short weeks ago and has been titled Picture South Perth. The website link to visit is:

Picture South Perth is an online collection of historic images dating back to the 1870s that showcases the people, places and events that have shaped the City of South Perth.
It contains photographs from the City of South Perth’s Local History Collection and artwork from the May and Herbert Gibbs Collection which has been scanned and catalogued by dedicated library staff.
Through Picture South Perth you can search, tag and comment on images. Key words such as people’s names, places and subjects can be clicked on to view more images that have been tagged with the same terms.

Share your images through Picture South Perth to preserve our cultural heritage.
Contact the City of South Perth Libraries on 9474-0800 or to arrange for your images to be scanned and returned to you.
