Description

FUNCTIONS:
As well as producing images which documented and publicised the Department's activities, the Photographic Section produced photographs, etc. for other Government departments, which were used primarily for educational display and publicity purposes. The Photographic Section also produced short films showing the development and progress of the State's major primary industries.

ADMINISTRATIVE STRUCTURE:
A Publicity Branch was established within the Agriculture Department in 1922, incorporating the Publications Section, the Department's Library and the Photographic Section. The Branch also co-ordinated the Department's radio news services (from 1927/28), exhibitions, and agricultural education and training programs throughout the State.

After a reorganisation of the Section in 1945, the Department consolidated its publicity and information services to form the Information Branch in 1948.
