The Kelly Albums

  • MDHS has been given copies of photos taken from a set of C19th albums containing images collected by the Kelly family some 100+ years ago of inhabitants of Briagolong, Maffra, Stratford, and Dargo.
  • The photographs are all postcard sized and apparently date from 1860s to 1900, with the bulk from the 1880s. 
  • 71 photographs remain unidentified.  The possibilities are listed in detail below. 
  • Known photographers include Vize, Trood, Cornell, Bock and Glenny - all from Sale - and St Georges Hall Studio, Grouzelle & Co and Batchelder & Co from Melbourne.
  • If you think you can identify any of the persons in the photos, please contact either Philip Pope -  - or Heather Kelly - - but not the Maffra Historical Society
  • Please use the "Picture Number" to indicate which image/s you are identifying.
  • We are anxious to avoid people just guessing, so please explain why you might think your identification is correct (eg. you have a similar photo, family likeness, etc).
  • The images are reduced and adapted for the Internet; if you would like good copies of any of the posted images, or seek information about the identified photos, please contact Heather by email.
