A trip to Sydney made for a quiet weekend on the Beattie photos front. I did note from our web statistics that the popular search term is Beattie photographs scoring higher than historic photographs or old photographs of Tasmania.
Whilst in Sydney, I visited the Rocks Market where I saw lots of historic old photos of Tasmania and Hobart as well as other areas of Australia. Most of these old Australian photos dated back to the 1880's or slightly before. The quality left a bit to be desired but I was delighted to note their price was slightly more than we charge. It's always good to know our price is right.
Back to digitising the glass plates and large format negatives this week. Expect more surprises. The collection on display on the web site is very close to 1000 pictures now.
