Valley of the Hunter River (1960)

This is a 16mm film reel that forms part of the Archives of the Hunter Valley Co-Operative Diary Company Ltd.

It was digitised in April 2014 for the University of Newcastle’s Cultural Collections (Auchmuty Library) Australia.

The original black and white 16mm film is not in the best condition, but our digitisers did the best they could, the quality does get more stable as the film proceeds.
