One of the greatest assets of the LHI Historical Society its large collection of photographs and negatives dating from 1900. 

The collection captures unique aspects of Lord Howe Island’s history such as the palm industry and shipping, along with families, weddings, schooling, farming, fishing and tourism.

This project enabled the purchase of scanner and software to digitise the collection, and a research assistant to carry out scanning of around 3,500 images. It is envisaged the collection will grow, with donations and acquisitions.
