Kennedy Regiment Library Images
Kennedy regiment Library places images on the Picture Queensland database
The Kennedy Regiment Library has taken an opportunity offered by the State Library of Queensland to contribute some of it's photgraphic record to the Picture Queensland collection.
Images of Queensland - its people and places, past and present. Picture Queensland holds an ever growing number of images that build a unique pictorial record of the State of Queensland. There is a mix of historical and contemporary images from urban, regional and rural Queensland.
Picture Queensland can be enjoyed by students, researchers, genealogists and anyone with an interest in Queensland's cultural heritage.
The majority of the images are from the John Oxley Library, State Library of Queensland, which holds the world's largest collection of photographic material relating to the history and development of Queensland.
The Picture Queensland Outreach project provided the opportunity to expand upon this and begin the digitisation of Kennedy Regiment Library images.
The Kennedy Regiment was originally geographically defined around the Townsville/Charters Towers area and later the 31st Battalion was formed drawing on men from the additional areas of Bowen and Ingham. Over the history of the Regiment, which dates from 1886, documents and images have been collected and donated to record its history. Much of the history is best portrayed through the images that are held in the collection. The images portray Battalion activities both in Australia and abroad and follow the history of the Battalion through its various stages.
Copying images for publication or commercial use is not permitted without written consent. Print copies of images may be obtained by contacting the Hinchinbrook Library.
