Digitised @ SLQ – Barnard, Lawrence and Loane Family glass plate negatives

State Library recently digitised a selection of 50 glass plate negatives from the Barnard, Lawrence and Loane Family glass plate negatives collection. This collection of images taken around Queensland came to the Library unidentified and undated, but thanks to the ingenuity of our staff we have been able to identify some of these images, including street scenes from Brisbane, Barcaldine, Clermont, Gladstone, Thursday Island and Townsville.
