Robert Augustus Henry L'Estrange collection

The initial collection of original photographic hardware, prints, books and glass plates was owned by R.A.H. L'Estrange (1858 - 1941) and was donated by Mrs Patricia Campbell Hemsley (nee L'Estrange). In 2016, Mr David Hemsley (QUT Alumni - Mechanical Engineering) donated a further 1,200 glass plates to add to the collection. Mr Michael Stephenson digitised the glass plates. For more information about Robert A.H. L'Estrange see: L'Estrange Items will be added to this collection over time. The photo is ca. 1895 in Ireland with Robert A.H. L'Estrange and his family.
