The Frozen Hole - Recycled History - Don Stephens

Recycled History - Don Stephens

Posted in Gallery

While doing my semi-regular weekend activity of rummaging through Hobart's tip shops looking for that golden item I recently stumbled across a giant stack of old photos that someone decided they no longer needed. Atop of the pile was an old Sydney to Hobart black and white shot. I thought it looked pretty cool and ended up spending the best part of the next hour going through the entire collection. In hindsight I probably should have purchased more but I'm pretty happy with what I came away with.

 

Deep in the pile I found several photos of Eaglehawk Neck prior to the days of The Officers Mess or even a sealed road heading around to The Lufra. There were a few old Remarkable Caves photos a shot of Bruny and one of Betsey Island looking out from the hill at wedge.

The photographer responsible for these photos is Don Stephens. Who the hell is that you ask? After some quick googling I found out that Don Stephens worked for Hobart newspaper The Mercury for more than thirty years. His choice of camera was a Mamiya RB6x7.

Don’s captured many images of the devastating Hobart bushfires which were published in The Mercury, 7-9 February 1967. Many are now held in the National Library of Australia’s collections.

If anyone else has found photos displaying our amazing coastline from back in the day and is willing to share please let me know.
