  • Scope and Content
    These photographs document various occupations which have all but disappeared from modern working life, such as dogmen, farriers, milkmen, and bar staff in a Sydney jazz club. There are also photographs of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's wrapped coast, Little Bay, 1969, which was a radical artistic undertaking for its time.

  • General note

    Originally taken in the 1960s, these photographs capture a previous way of life. This period coincided with a building boom in the Sydney CBD and a time of emerging social change. Not only an important documentary record, they also have a nostalgia appeal -- file notes.
