Editorial cartoons from The Bulletin, 1886 to 1952

Harvested: 9 May 2019

The Bulletin, 13 October 1888, p. 1

Using this notebook I downloaded at least one full page editorial cartoon for every issue of The Bulletin from 4 September 1886 to 17 September 1952. In total there are 3,471 images (approximately 60gb).

The names of each image file provide useful contextual metadata. For example, the file name 19330412-2774-nla.obj-606969767-7.jpg tells you:

Fragment Meaning

nla.obj-606969767 the Trove identifier for the issue, can be used to make a url eg https://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-606969767

To make it easier to browse the images, I've compiled them into a series of PDFs – one PDF for each decade. The PDFs include lower resolution versions of the images together with their publication details and a link to Trove. They're all available from DropBox:
