Picture Queensland - images of Queensland,
its people and places, past and present
Picture Queensland was launched with 6,000 images from the photographic collection of the State Library of Queensland's John Oxley Library and will continue to grow as digitised images are added to the collection.
The Queensland Performing Arts Centre is the first industry partner in this exciting project. A sample of images from the collections of the QPAC Archives and the QPAC Museum has been added to the on-line images available at Picture Queensland.
The photographs in Picture Queensland depict various aspects of
Queensland life from the contributions of Indigenous Queenslanders,
the settlement of early pioneers; the prominent people who have
shaped our history; the homes and buildings constructed, to the
fashions we wore through the years.
The collection benefits Queensland students, researchers and lifelong learners, publishers and authors, genealogists and enthusiasts of all ages who have an interest in, or need to research, any aspect of Queensland's history or development. A collection previously restricted to "walk in" clients is now available to anyone who can access the Internet. Picture Queensland
