Historic Photographs

The old postcard-style photographs are from the Public Record Office collection,* accessed through the Museum Victoria website (see the link below). We have tried to formally seek copyright permission for their use in our site but the procedure that is required is currently broken or under review and consequently unavailable. We will obtain permission as soon as the facility for doing so is back in place...
