About the photos
Part of this collection of lantern slides was shown at the Franco-British Exhibition in London, 1908
Many of the slides - NRS 14086 - are of typical country scenes such as saw mills, dairy farms, mining, and timber felling and hauling. A number of slides depict typical NSW suburban homes of the period. There are also slides of the main buildings in which the Exhibition was held, and some of the NSW exhibits. Some of the images may have been added to the collection later for tourism and promotional purposes.
