Photographic Treasures

Berowra Living History is incredibly fortunate to have an extensive collection of digitized photographs, dating from the early 1900s and before right through to more recent times. Some of these photos are images which have featured heavily in past publications, but others are entirely new to the community, and we are always proud to be able to share these photos.

The photos which excite me most are often images which I have caught glimpses of in the past. The image featured here is one of them. A cropped version of this photo has featured in several publications, but the full image is far more evocative. It focuses on the Berowra side of Berowra Waters, with what appear to be tourist buses lined up along the road approaching the ferry. People, perhaps tourists out for a day in the country, mill about and the famous waters provide a stunning backdrop.

Photos like this add significantly to not only our archive, but also to our understanding of Berowra’s social and cultural history. If you have any you can share with us, we would love to hear from you!
