George Billing Collection
Highlights from the Billing Lantern Slide Collection.

George Billing (1911-2000) was born in Sheffield in 1911. He retired from the Police Department as an Inspector in the Uniform Branch. He was made a life member of the Order of Australia in 1989, founded the Post Office Museum, had an interest in photography and was president of the Australian Photographic Society in 1970. He appeared on several Television shows including "Childrens Time." Many of the series in this Agency are glass plates and photographs collected by Inspector Billing rather than photographs he took himself.
