Australian life in photos, early 1900s to about 1945.

The Powerhouse Museum has a great collection of photos that are mainly from glass plates (with a few snuck in from later - I don't think they had WWII aeroplanes in the early 1900s). They show tourist-type views such as Coogee Beach (warning - naked ankles showing) and occasional shots like the miner's camp. It's not a bad way to get a feeling for dress, custom and location for these places.
