AUGUST 2012 - IMAGE LIBRARY
The Society was successful in receiving a grant from the IMB Community Foundation to purchase software to allow us to upload our photographic collection to the internet. Our nationally-significant collection of photos from the German Internment Camp at Berrima will be online during September, along with many other images from our collection. The entire collection of more than 8,000 images will gradually come online over the next few months.
