SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPH PROJECT

Winner of the 2011 Sir Rupert Hamer Records Management Award
for Achievement in Good Records Management Practice

Did YOU attend School in the Knox Area ?

The Knox Historical Society Inc. copies or collects school group photographs and currently has 18,000 school photographs (some dating back 100 years) from 54 schools.

This is an important project for the historical society as it documents the children who grew up in the area and aids researchers undertaking family history research.

One room in the Museum at Ambleside Park is devoted to the school photograph collection. Visitors enjoy looking for photographs of themselves or family members and often help the historical society by identifying some of the faces on the photographs.

Copies of photographs from the collection can be purchased as scanned imaged on a disk unless other arrangements are made.

Displays of photos from the School Photograph Collection are a popular attraction at school reunions and community fesitvals.
