Len A. Clark photos
Graeme Prideaux <graeme.prideaux@...>
Len was a transport enthusiast from way, way back in the time almost beyond recall. Some of his specialties were the tramway and ferry systems on the north shore of Port Jackson. He was the author of the classic "North of the Harbour".
The images both in and out of copyright should be investigated as there are likely gems to be found.
I happened across this collection in the SLNSW catalogue and thought it might be of interest.
They are listed as a collection of negatives and up to number 873 are all out of copyright.
I would imagine that you could photograph them using the light box and then convert them into positives on your computer.
Does anyone know if these photos are well known?
There are many photos of government railways and trams in different states.
