Australian colonial images found in UK National Archives

A collection of photographs detailing the growth of the Australian colonies has been found in the London archives. The collection was put together by the British Colonial Office on the orders of the 2nd Earl of Granville as a means of reporting on the progress in the colonial Australia.
The Australia Collection is made up of 45 albums, which includes 2,500 images, photographs and drawings of things considered important at the time. The records have now been digitised and catalogued. The collection is to be released online on Flickr and the UK Archives website.
