Description

This collection of photographs was specially created by the Photography Section of the Survey Office, on behalf of the Public Works Department. The Photography Section frequently undertook such photographic work for other government departments who used the images for record, educational, promotional and exhibition purposes. This collection provides a photographic record of various Public Works Department construction projects, undertaken between 1949 and 1958. Among the photographs in this collection are images of public hospitals (including Brisbane General, South Brisbane Auxiliary and Goodna Mental Hospitals), state schools (including Sherwood, Humpybong, Geebung, Mitchelton, Wynnum Central, Lota, Wellers Hill and Greenslopes primary schools and Cavendish Road High), housing estates, government bores, and the fifth and sixth units of Anzac Square. There are also photographs of the Public Works Depot at Ipswich, tradesmen employed by the Department and departmental exhibits at the Queensland Industries Fair. Each image in this collection is recorded in the general negative control register QS171. Items are listed by negative number, within the B1 and B2 negative series. Some photos of the Survey Office, its staff, machinery and equipment have also been included in this collection.
