Information Sources


The Works Department was responsible for the construction and maintenance of State High Schools and Technical Colleges. Apart from correspondence relating to new buildings, renovations and maintenance of schools, files may also include plans (architectural drawings), specifications, contracts, and land transactions. Papers relating to high, intermediate, and technical schools and colleges may be found on one file, or may have separate numbers. Projects completed with subsidy usually have a file number with an "S". "L" files usually relate to Land. For files with other letters often the number usually details a specific contract of project, and a file with (1) usually has papers concerned with air-raid precautions.
