Welcome to the Shellharbour Image Library


Shellharbour City Council has produced a fascinating insight into the history of the area with Shellharbour Images - a collection containing over 4000 historical photographs dating from 1850 to 2003.

The images and notes were compiled from the collections of Shellharbour City Libraries and the Tongarra Heritage Society by Lynn Warrington, Dorothy Gillis and Kevin Gillis, with the assistance of funding from the Library Council of New South Wales.

The collection aims to create and preserve a pictorial record of the history and development of Shellharbour City for current and future generations.

Shellharbour City Libraries & City Museum welcome the donation of photographs relating to the local area. The Library will copy and return original prints if required.
