COVID-19 Photographs

The State Library's collection of WA COVID-19 images continues to grow, thanks to you. Below you can see highlights from collection. All the photographs were donated by the public and added to our catalogue.

The State Library collects Western Australian history for now and the future. We are seeking photographs, signage, posters, flyers, diaries, mail-outs. Anything that reflects the business, community response and changes to services during the pandemic. If you have any Covid-19 material you'd like to donate to the Library, please use our collection form.
