200 years of technology

The recent post on architectural delights reminded me that during the Beaconsfield mining disaster I googled Beaconsfield and turned up some pictures of the Batman Bridge nearby. That led to some more pictures of Tasmanian bridges and one of them led to some other bridges in Victoria and NSW, and that link led this amazing on-line resource, almost 1000 pages of the history of technology in Australia from 1788.

The table of contents tells it all, there is something for everyone, from rural research and development, to food technology, textiles, transport, mining, water resources and the defence industries.
