The Archives and History Resources catalogue provides access to over 1 million items from 1842 to the present. You’ll find documents, photographs, maps and plans relating to the Sydney local area.
City Archivist Janet Villata will introduce you to the City of Sydney Archives. Learn how to search the catalogue, browse photographs, maintain a selection of your favourites. Try some search techniques and find iconic images to share. See the new Covid-19 Pandemic collection and find out how you can contribute to it, documenting history from the ground up.
