Amazing Kodachrome Slides Capture Street Scenes of Australia in the 1960s

The 1960s was one of the most tumultuous and divisive decades in world history – including in Australia.

It saw the birth of the civil rights movement, greater moves towards equality for women in the workplace and the beginnings of legal recognition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

A US President visited these shores for the first time and an Australian prime minister disappeared. Humankind walked on the moon and Beatlemania swept the nation. We converted to decimal currency and created a TV show about a kangaroo that was seen around the world.

These amazing Kodachrome slides from Dave's old slides captured street scenes of Australia in the 1960s.
