Families come in all shapes and sizes. Wollongong City Libraries latest photographic exhibition ‘Illawarra Families’ depicts families in the area over time, from the formal studio photographs of people in their finest frills and hats to informal snaps of families who have worked, volunteered, played sport and music together. Waves of migration have brought families from many cultural backgrounds. You can see the ‘Illawarra Families’ exhibition on display from August 2023 at Wollongong Library.
