Important note

A word of caution. Most of the Howard and Shearsby images are taken from glass negatives, some of which had been damaged before they were taken into the Society's collection. The images have been copied as they appear - some mounted on timber, others show significant damage but are largely intact. Every effort has been made to identify individuals but this has been problematic. Names have, in most cases, been etched into the reverse of the negative but it is believed that the individual named may not always be the subject pictured.

There are also number of unidentified images. Information as to the identity of the individuals will be greatly appreciated - ww1images@yasshistory.org.au.

Copies

Copies of the images may be purchased from the Society for personal use and research purposes. Please see http://www.yasshistory.org.au/archives.htm.
