Historical information

Alan Hunt, M.P. Minister for Local Government in the Bolte State Government meets Shire of Eltham Councillors including Cr. Alistair Knox (seated). He is holding and has been presumably presented with a copy of 'Pioneers & Painters: One hundered years of Eltham and its Shire' by Alan Marshall published for the Shire's centenary in 1971.


This photo forms part of a collection of photographs gathered by the Shire of Eltham for their centenary project book, "Pioneers and Painters: 100 years of the Shire of Eltham" by Alan Marshall (1971). The collection of over 500 images is held in partnership between Eltham District Historical Society and Yarra Plenty Regional Library (Eltham Library) and is now formally known as 'The Shire of Eltham Pioneers Photograph Collection.'
It is significant in being the first community sourced collection representing the places and people of the Shire's first one hundred years.
