Glass negatives of the Woy Woy areaca 1890-1910
This image is from a collection of 400 glass plate negatives taken by William Joseph Macpherson (1866-1923) between 1890 and 1910.
Many of the images in this collection feature Australians enjoying the beach, at a time when most people swam in their underwear, or nothing at all!
