In October, 2013 the State Library of NSW requested permission to archive the Towamba Valley History website in the PANDORA Archive so as to provide public online access:-
"The State Library of NSW is committed to preserving selected websites of lasting cultural value for long-term access by the Australian community. Only a relatively small number of websites are assessed as being significant enough for PANDORA and we would be grateful if you would allow us to include yours.
The Library will catalogue your website and add the record to the National Bibliographic Database (a database of catalogue records shared by over 1,100 Australian libraries), as well as to our own online catalogue. This will increase awareness of your website among researchers using libraries
.
PANDORA, Australia's Web Archive, was set up by the National Library in 1996 to enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online Australian publications/websites. It is a joint venture between the National Library of Australia and the State Libraries. Additional information about PANDORA can be found on the National Library's server at: http://pandora.nla.gov.au/index.html

The Forgotten Corner
Interviews




Oral history interviews of life in the Towamba, Burragate and Pericoe areas from the early 1900s to the early 1970s. These interviews open a window through which the past is revealed by those who lived it. Perhaps you may discover a missing ancestor in stories remembered by their parents and grandparents. Theirs was a hard life but as one ‘oldie’ said, ‘It didn’t seem hard because everyone else was doing the same thing. That’s just the way it was.’

A COASTAL JOURNEY TO THE BORDER OF NEW SOUTH WALES/VICTORIA
1882-1892

The coastal border area of New South Wales and Victoria was a no-man’s-land, far from any major settlement that could supply the necessary goods and services. It could be wild and dangerous but also, as these journalists describe, beautiful in scenery and bountiful in wildlife. These articles will give the modern-day tourist a different picture of the countryside seen by these two travelling journalists in the 1880s, before Federation.

115 pages. Colour images,
$25 per copy $7 postage
