The City of Sydney has more than 50,000 photographs in its ArchivePix collection. These images have been digitised and catalogued.
More photographs are added every month. However, some photographic records series and collections are only selectively represented.
Most photos date from between 1900 and the present day. They include photographs:
- taken by council agencies as part of their business activities
- captured for the Sydney Festival
- donated by the public
- occasionally purchased because they are of exceptional quality and relevance to the collection.
The archival collections document the City’s built environment – from public spaces to the council’s buildings, activities and services.
