Image Gallery

You can explore the visual material from the frontiers using the resource’s 'Image Gallery'. These galleries represent selected highlights from the vast range of maps, plans, illustrations, photographs and paintings within Frontier Life: Borderlands, Settlement & Colonial Encounters.

The image galleries are divided by the type of image: Artwork and Photographs, Maps and Museum Objects. The objects section is a collection of artefacts that have been photographed and provide further context to the lifestyle experienced by those people who lived on the frontiers.
