The Ralph Snowball Collection

The photographs in this collection are a wonderful record of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Valley at the turn of the twentieth century. They were taken by Ralph Snowball, whose glass negatives form part of the Norm Barney Collection. We have scanned these negatives and made them available to all on our Living Histories @ UON site.
