Ballarat Heritage Services Bakery Hill Post Office, Victoria

Established in 1998, Ballarat Heritage Services provides award winning publishing and cultural heritage services. We take pride in making a broad range of heritage related items and photographs accessible to researchers, school children, family historians and academics. By documentation and through interpretation, researching, writing, creating books, and unique indexing projects, Ballarat Heritage Services has contributed significantly to a wide field of research, especially on "hidden" aspects of history such as asylums, women's refuges, migration (especially early non-English speakers in Victoria) and industrial heritage. Our large picture collection includes many images of people and places, especially from Victoria and its goldfields.

Our Collection comprises a range of images and databases collected during research or publication, as well as a number of contemporary images taken by associates Clare K. Gervasoni, Dr Dorothy G. Wickham, Wayne Phillipson and Lisa J. Gervasoni. We are also grateful for donations and contributions.

The Collection includes Victoria's Pre-Olympic Swimming Pools by Lisa Gervasoni, and a Swiss/Italian collection, particularly including the Gervasoni family of Yandoit Creek, Victoria. Photographs taken during research for major projects undertaken by Dr Dorothy Wickham include those of the former Ballarat Female Refuge, Scott's Parade, Ballarat, research into the freemasons of the Central Highlands of Victoria, and Stonemason's Marks. Strengths of this collection are its Eureka and early goldfields focus, industrial heritage, and its focus on little known aspects of Victoria's history and heritage.

Significance

The Ballarat Heritage Services Picture Collection consists of thousands of images collected to use for interpretation and illustration. Some images date back over 100 years, but many are contemporary views of Victorian towns and places photographed while travelling to conduct research. The collection shows change over time, and the more recent images will be of greater importance in future years.
