Capturing Time

See historic Australia from a new perspective in Capturing Time: Panoramas of Old Australia,  published by the National Library of Australia. 

Using images, maps and other material from the National Library’s vast collection, Capturing Time, by Edwin Barnard, looks at the magic of panoramas – the 19th century equivalent to Google maps.

Featuring more than 20 panoramas, Capturing Time looks back on our early nation, from the first sight of Canberra as our bush capital, to the streets of a convict Sydney to the gold rushes of Melbourne.
