posted 24 Jul 2011 03:06 by Kununurra Historical Society Inc. Archive and Museum   [ updated 25 Jul 2011 07:24 ]
 A new collection of 35mm slides, the work of the late Kevin Richards, former Entomologist at the Kimberley Research Station for the Department of Agriculture WA, are being uploaded, documented and made accessible from the Kevin Richards 35mm Slide Collection - Set or view an embedded slideshow on this website from here - Kevin Richards 35mm Slide Collection Slideshow.

 Many new collections have been uploaded recently and with the Kevin Richards collection of over 600 slides, will take the total to over 1900 KHS images online.

 All of the KHS images have also been added to the National Library of Australia (NLA) Picture Australia Group and many KHS archive images online are now accessible from the NLA's Trove Search, however new collections may take some weeks before being visible in Trove.

Also see the KHS presentation on
some recent research into the 1921 WA/NT Border Determinations that were happening exactly 90 years ago, presented in the form of a 1921 Western Mail news article about this expedition to determine the WA/NT border on the ground. The article has been corrected by KHS on the National Library of Australia's “Trove” site, then re-formatted on the KHS website with photographs from the (new) KHS – 1921 CM Hambidge (late, former SA Surveyor General) Family Collection, interwoven with excerpts from the diary of MP Durack, thanks to Kevin Markey and Patsy Millett.
