I left Newcastle 40 years ago and It's good to see the old time photos are being preserved in a format that anyone can get their hands on, at a reasonable price . Once again i say its another excellent book by Greg and Sylvia,
PS You keep producing them, and I'll keep buying them

Images on Glass presents prints taken from glass negatives. I was amazed at the clarity of these images. One of the features of this book is to show large landscape shots and then crop to zoom in on distant details. This is something we now associate with high pixel digital images but these photos show the skill of early photographers. Wonderful secrets revealed. Great books for you, your children and grandchildren.

Greg and Sylvia Ray once again give us Novocastrians a visual step
back in time of our great city. Although I have resided in QLD for 20 years I look forward to coming home, and also for more fine publications by Greg and Sylvia with the "Newie" Herald.
I have all 5 books and thoroughly recommend the full collection so far, for all who reside in the best city in Australia or us expats longing to return.

What a wonderful peek into the past, I can only wish my own family had taken such wonderful photographs. It is so interesting to look into the faces of the persons depicted and wonder what their lives were like. Lovely also to see some of the elegant buildings in their beautiful grounds. I bought this book for my son because he is into history, but have really enjoyed looking through it myself.
