In 2016 the State Library Victoria received a large donation of glass plate negatives from the studio of Bendigo commercial photographer Vincent Kelly. This collection of photographs dates from the first half of the 20th century and is an important and fascinating record of Bendigo’s social history. Librarians have been working to try and identify the subjects. In this video they share what they have discovered and several of their favourite images. Drawing on this extraordinary archive of Vincent Kelly’s photographs, librarians show some of the tips and tricks they used in tracing the subjects.
