Series notes:
Aerial photographs of Tasmania, taken from aeroplanes flown by Fred Huxley.

Items 1-6, 9-10, and 13-92 are pasted into an album with pages annotated with brief descriptions. These photographs are the work of Herbert King, a pioneering aerial photographer operating in the 1920s. The album was either compiled by Huxley from a set of King's images, or may have been a gift from King himself. An extensive collection of King images is held by QVMAG, including duplicates of images from this set.

The remainder of this series (items 7,8, 11,12, and 93 - 123) are loose photographic prints. Titles for these photographs are taken from annotations of the reverse of the prints. Most of the loose prints are likely to be the work of H J King. Where a different photographer's name has been written or stamped on the back of the print this has been noted after the title.

The only date provided is 1921' written on several of the loose photographs.

These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archives
System of Arrangement:
A disbound album with card cover pages and 88 printed photographs; 35 loose photographic prints.
