Object statement
Fold out photographs, Sydney scenes, paper, maker unknown, Australia, 1926-1935
Since the advent of railway lines and trams Australians have been able to easily pursue travel, a much loved leisure activity that continues today. Advertising and the production of memorabilia such as photographs and postcards promoted travel, and improvements in working conditions from the beginning of the twentieth century led to more leisure time for many Australians, creating an ever increasing tourist market.

At the beginning of the twentieth century a concerted effort was made by the New South Wales government to promote tourism to the State. A department was set up and campaigns and strategies were implemented to promote travel in NSW. This folder of photographs was collected as a memento by a Western Australian woman who travelled to Sydney in the late 1920s and stayed for 3 to 4 years. It highlights the success of advertising campaigns to get tourists to NSW and the type of mementos that were available. Such photographs are rarely produced today due to the popularity of cameras for the domestic market and digital technology. However, keeping photographs as memorabilia for a holiday is a tradition that continues today.
Maker unknown.
These fold-out photographs were owned by Mary Anne Collins (nee) Joyce, who was the donor's mother. She travelled from Perth to Sydney in the late 1920s, staying for 3 to 4 years. Mary had relatives in Sydney, the O'Sullivan family (her mother's relatives) and the Joyce family. During her travels she collected memorabilia and made many friends.

Mary Anne Collins died in 1990 at the age of 91. The donor received this collection of objects after her mother's death.
