EXHIBITION: The Queen’s Album

Exhibition and Shows

27 May 2022 to 29 May 2022 Once Only Event

Curated by senior curator, Dr Penny Stannard and curator, Bonnie Wildie, The Queen’s Album explores the unique story of an album of photographs gifted to Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle in 1882 on behalf of the people of NSW. The album contained 64 photographic images of sites and scenes in Sydney and regional NSW that were constructed to promote NSW as a progressive and desirable place, and to consolidate its position within the British Empire. At the time, the album was described as a ‘graceful tribute of loyalty’ to Queen Victoria. Today, its whereabouts are unknown.

In 2018 NSW State Archives rediscovered most of the original photographic glass plate negatives in the State Archives Collection which were conserved, digitised and reproduced for the exhibition project.
