Things related to my work as a ‘Digital Drop In’ at the State Library of NSW’s DXLab
The Tribune was a newspaper published by the Communist Party of Australia. The State Library of NSW holds more than 60,000 negatives and photos from the Tribune which document a wide range of political events and social issues from 1964 to 1991.
Here’s the top-level record for the Tribune collection. I think I’ll be working with Series 1-4 which contain the negatives. While many of the negatives have been digitised, only a selection are currently available online. Here’s some examples:
- Tribune negatives of anti-Vietnam War demonstrations, including Australia’s first sit down demonstration, Sydney, and a protest outside Central Police Court, Liverpool Street, Sydney, New South Wales, 1965
- Tribune negatives including protests against development in Woolloomooloo, and Student Action for Aborigines fundraising folk concert at Paddington Town Hall, Sydney, New South Wales, 1965
- Tribune negatives including the Freedom Rides SAFA (Student Action For Aboriginals) Trip 17- 26 February, 1965
To find all the digitised items you can go to the Advanced Search page, search for title keywords “Tribune negatives”, and check the “digital content” box.
