Photo Books – Newcastle NSW

In 2010, Newcastle Herald journalist Greg Ray chanced on a collection of photographic negatives. Bought at auction, the collection was a cache of images accumulated by the late Ken Magor, a fireman and transport enthusiast in the Hunter area.

Many of the negatives had originated from the Newcastle Herald and Sun newspapers, which appeared to have disposed of them decades before. The rediscovery of these lost images has filled a gap in Newcastle’s pictorial record.
