Sublime Vision - the story of the City of Greater Wollongong NSW Australia 1963.pdf

This exhibition presents a historic portrait of local life mapped across the streets and beach scapes of the Illawarra. Recorded originally by early commercial street photographers from 1930’s – 60’s of passers-by, these affordable postcard sized prints captured people in a candid way. Collected through a call-out from residents, these historic street photos have been assembled to provide a tangible trace of the city allowing visitors to reimagine how this city once looked.
