LaTrobe Journal

The La Trobe Journal is a scholarly publication featuring research drawing on State Library Victoria’s rich collections. This is the latest edition.

About the current issue (No.106):

The Library’s collections are filled with glimpses into Victoria’s past that help us to make sense of the present and imagine the future. Three articles in this issue look at photographic collections, from the cartes de visite collection, so full of social history, to recently donated photographs documenting the experiences of two Victorian soldiers in World War II, to new collections that record Victoria’s experiences of the pandemic.

We also reveal the history of two seemingly unlikely library collections - the erstwhile collection of plaster casts, and the unconventional ‘deaccessioning' of a WWI bomb. And we trace research into 19th-century Melbourne school proprietor Elizabeth McArthur, the contribution of Thomas Bride as chief librarian from 1881-95, and the story of early Melbourne department store Foy & Gibson.
