Scanning session to collect old photos

By | October 27, 2011

A free scanning session is being held at Robe on Sunday October 30, 2011, so people can bring in photos from their private collections and have them scanned on the spot and saved as digital copies. The event is being organized by the local branch of the National Trust with support from Wakefield Press and the Robe District Council to expand the town’s collection of historic images. Selected photos will be included in a new display being set up at the Customs House Museum and the book about Robe being compiled by best-selling author Liz Harfull.
In particular, the event is looking for:
- Historic images of local buildings, rural properties and landmarks
- Early events such as race meetings, shows, sports competitions and community social occasions
- Popular local pastimes such as surfing, fishing, boating and beach activities, hunting and bushwalking (up to the 1960s)
- Early local industries and businesses such as fishing, shark oil rendering, farming, shops and factories
- People of historic interest
