Street photograph by Leicagraph Co photographer Ted Waight, Pitt Street, Sydney, 1940. State Library of New South Wales: ON 228
Taken against the vibrant background of the city streets, these photographs captured candid moments in the lives of millions of people, from uniformed servicemen and women to postwar migrants exploring their new city and young couples out for a day in town.
Following a hugely successful public call-out, the exhibition draws together photos from hundreds of private family albums. This extraordinary, largely unseen record of Sydney and its people is displayed alongside contemporary street photography by photomedia artist Anne Zahalka, capturing people on the streets of Sydney today.
