Photography in Lithgow

crowd

A large number of attendees at this morning’s speaker event at Lithgow Library were enthralled by the interesting topics of discussion including how the process of photographs appearing in the Lithgow Mercury changed from being very complicated to relatively simple. Other topics included the early Lithgow photographers and the search for information and photographs by them as well as the evolution of photography from the 1980s into the 1990s. An insight into the process of maintaining and digitizing the library’s extensive photographic collection rounded off the morning’s event which was very well attended.
