Western Perspectives on a Nation - A collection of 8 web sites comprises images from the Battye collections that tell the story of Australia's economic and social development through the twentieth century - as viewed from Western Australia.
The seven linked sites funded by the National Council for the Centenary of Federation, through the Western Australian State Library Custodians and the Save Our Century Fund, cover the themes of architecture and building, the land, the sea, mining, transport, migration and settlement, and clothing. An eighth site showing images of women through the century has been added through the generosity of a private donor to the Save Our Century Fund.
