Tim Koch finds an online archive that is worth a Captain Cook.
The State Library of South Australia, the SLSA, is located in the South Australia’s state capital Adelaide. While this is not an unreasonable place for SA’s official state library to be, and it does make it convenient for the 1,350,000 Adelaideans, it is of little use to anyone else (including most Australians). Fortunately, Australia now has the Internet and the good librarians at the SLSA have made much of their holdings available online – including their large photographic archive. HTBS Types will not be surprised that I typed ‘rowing’ into the search facility and found many splendid images. A random selection of pictures that are in the public domain is shown here but many more can be viewed on the SLSA website.
