Collection Overview


[Lantern slides from the Elwood Mead papers]


Mead, Elwood, 1858-1936, creator, creator.


About half of the views in this collection relate to reclamation and resettlement project in Australia, including some general views of Leeton, New South Wales. Many maps, announcements, views of farming, factories, etc. are pictured. Many slides are text for presentations on reclamation projects, particularly in Australia. Glass negatives occasionally present are reproductions of maps and plans, often from published sources. The other views also relate to irrigation and land use; some appear to be general interest scenes produced for tourists. Most were taken in unknown locations, but a few are identified as Israel and Europe.
