Well here we are at the launch of Stage 1.
500 photos digitised with 100 fully developed and ready for your enjoyment. We will be adding more finished photos every few days until the entire collection is online. In case you are wondering why the total number of photos seems to change or why we are a bit vague on the exact number, I'll let you in on a secret - no one has actually counted them. Each one has been assigned a number, but the numbers are not completely sequential. Until we have digitised and catalogued them, the exact number remains a mystery. Our best estimate, based on the number of boxes, is somewhere between 3000 and 4000, but the boxes are all different sizes. Maybe we'll run a "guess the number" competition?
Anyway, enjoy the collection, feel free to comment, especially if you have verifiable information, dates etc. As it says on the History Page, we are are not historians. But most of all, keep coming back to check out the new photos being added and tell all your friends.

The Beatties Studio blog will provide some behind the scenes information on the studio, the collection of historic old Tasmanian photographs and the digitising process.
