The Manly Local Studies Image Library is home to thousands of photographs that document Manly, New South Wales, Australia during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. For readers interested in exploring these photographs, Mitchell Whitelaw created Exploring the Manly Local Studies Image Library: a unique interface that invites visitors to explore the collection by title keywords (explore by title) or by decade (explore by decade). If browsing by title, visitors will see a series of "tiles" that represent photographs with a certain word in their titles, such as uniform, street, or school. Each tile's size represents the number of photographs containing a particular title keyword. By selecting a tile, visitors may view all such photographs in that particular category. For example, the road category contains the photographs "Darley Road, near the corner of the Corso, c. 1900" and "Steyne Reserve, Ocean Beach Road, Manly c. 1911". Similarly, visitors can explore photographs by decade tiles. As this visualization reveals, many photographs in this collection date back to the 1900s.
