About the photographs -
With the exception of a few archival photographs acquired from John Oxley Library and Queensland Railway Archives, most of the photographs below were taken circa 1992-1994 by the author and Desley Collins while reconnoitring the Maranoa, Dawson, Macintyre, Gwydir, Liverpool Plains and Upper Hunter Districts. The majority are landscapes of significant historical sites. Robert Bagot’s 1851 map of Surat was included to assist with locating sites at Surat. Each photograph is relevant to some aspect of 'Goodbye Bussamarai'. Accordingly, they have been arranged in the chronological sequence that they illustrate. Click each photo for description.
