Old historical photographs of Victoria & other states of Australia.
Our aim is to supply highest quality reproductions of real photographic images of Australian scenes and life from the 1850s to the 1950s. Most of the photographs in our collection were produced by professional photographers. Our images are produced from original photographs using the highest quality equipment and materials and are presented in sepia tone. All of our images are treated with a UV resistant compound to enhance longevity without affecting clarity. Please note that the catalogue images are scanned at low resolution. Purchased photos are virtually as sharp as the original images. This website is best viewed via Internet Explorer.
Visit us at Red Hill Market (Melway Map 190 - J4) on the first Saturday of the month (September to May) 8.00am until 1.00pm. Note: Due to Covid 19 restrictions we have been mostly absent from Red Hill market since Feb 2020. However, we are hoping to return in the near future (Jan 2022).

|Search our catalogue of thousands of photos by locality and theme. The majority of our images are from Victoria, particularly the Dandenong Ranges, Mornington Peninsula, Upper Yarra Valley, Melbourne suburbs and country towns. We also have many themes, including transport, fashion/glamour, timber & logging and others. The majority of our photos are from the period 1900 to the 1950s.
