State Records is the NSW Government’s archives and records management authority. We manage the NSW State archives collection and set the rules and provide guidance on the management of official records. State Records holds many tens of thousands of archival photos from the late 19th Century to the present, capturing life in New South Wales in much of its richness and diversity.
