Faces of Australian Immigrants

Faces from travel documents or an alien registration form give us a snapshot of what the early Australian Immigrants looked liked when they first arrived in Australia. We have all heard the stories of a Kytherian who came to Australia as a 10 or 11 year old child, but when you see a photo of them at the time it makes it seem more real.
