The City of Boroondara Library Service holds thousands of historical photographs, many of which are digitised and available for you to discover in our photograph collection. The collection includes images of buildings, streetscapes, the natural environment, people and the events of Boroondara, from the mid-1800s to the present day. Photographs are an invaluable resource for family and local history research.

Donate a photograph

Our photograph collection continues to grow as we receive donations from community members in Boroondara and beyond.

We are always keen to add new photographic treasures and their stories to our collection as this will help the community, now and in the future, understand how the local history of the area has been shaped.

If you have a photograph of people or places in Boroondara, please consider donating a copy to the library and help us to collect and share the memories of Boroondara.
