The Commons category is here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Photographic_material_from_the_Q ueensland_State_Archives I'd appreciate any help in categorization.

Let me know if anyone wants to pursue this.

And there is a much larger image (and other digitised documents) collection on the QSA's website: http://www.archivessearch.qld.gov.au/Image/ImageBasicSearch.aspx where it seems the older photos are labelled "Copyright expired" without any requirement for attribution being mentioned. Not sure why there would be this difference, but I guess it doesn't matter too much either way for loading onto Commons. Tip for the novice on the QSA website, there are 2 types of searches: one on the catalogue and one on the digital collection. Make sure you are using the "image search" (digital collection) and not the "archive search" (paper collection), unfortunately the way they do the linking between pages can sometimes switch you back into "archive search" mode and you wonder why you can't find something you found earlier.
