Celebrating St Paddy’s day with our digital collection

In the lead up to next month’s Australian Heritage Festival, where part of QUT Library’s wonderful digital photographic collection will be on display, we thought we’d show you some of the rare images of Ireland we are preserving and making available for the whole world.

Part of “Traversing the Globe: the L’Estrange photographic legacy” exhibition, includes never before published images of Ireland from Queen Victoria’s visit to Dublin in April 1900.

These photographs were digitised from the original  lantern slides and dry glass plates donated to QUT digital collections by the family of the photographer Robert Augustus Henry L’Estrange.  The background to his extraordinary life and the upcoming Australian Heritage Festival exhibitions can found here.
