The early years
Home » Looking Back
“Looking Back”, are the societies web pages of historical images from our library. This small selection of images will be changed within a framework of themes throughout the year. The initial offering is of three periods in our region’s history, giving a brief glance at what was happening here, back then.
The images in our collection have had little if any restoration, what you see here, is pretty much how they are right now. Our efforts concentrate on preserving them, restoration will be done as time, necessity, and finances allow.
To view our images and the information we have, click the category photo in the header, it will take you to a page with additional images from that period.
The image library at Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society, contains over 8,000 photographs, images, and documents in digital format. These digital images are taken from the original photographs and documents we have collected over our 50 plus year history, as a society devoted to preserving our heritage.
