Local History - Intermission (1930)

Our Local History Collection can transport you into the history and heritage of our local places and people.

Discover a large range of books, manuscripts, photographs, records, maps and other documents which can give insight into Woollahra’s past, and can be used for researching the history of our area. Many resources have been digitised and can be viewed on our Local History Digital Archive, while others can be located at Woollahra Library at Double Bay.
