State Library Victoria houses a fascinating array of images and objects that reflect aspects of life in Victoria through the 20th century and into the 21st.
These items include major collections of photographs and artefacts from Victorian-based companies such as the Bryant and May Company.
One extraordinary collection is the WG Alma Conjouring Collection of books, posters and objects amassed by magician Will Alma. Other collections provide insights into various aspects of life in Victoria including sport, cinema and the arts.
The diversity of these displays reflect the extraordinary array of stories brought to life in our collections.
This image gallery presents an overview of items reflecting the theme of yesterday and today that have been on display in The Changing Face of Victoria exhibition since it opened in 2004.
