  • General note

    Slides are often numbered but appear to originate from different slide shows. Slides from "Opening notes for lantern lecture : The beginnings of Qantas - part 1. Surveying the route across Australia for the first England-Australia flyers; part 2. The early days of Qantas" are identified, where possible. These notes are held in the Sir Hudson Fysh - Papers, ca.1817-1974. Other slides are arranged roughly by date order of contents.
    Slides dated from "Opening notes for lantern lecture" (see above) and a copy annotated by Fysh is filed at the end of SLIDES 124
