Today, the National Library of Australia joins the The Commons on Flickr with aerial views from the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge including a nice shot of Bondi Beach, life in Drouin (Victoria) during World War II, including some beautiful portraits, Scenic pictures of Darling & Lower Murray during the flood of 1886, of The National Park, and from John George Hunter’s collection of Antarctica, amazing photos of the Ballets Russes during their 1930s Australia tour, as well as excerpts from the Sir Lionel Lindsay and Frank H. Boland collections.
