The envelope is in moderate condition, with some small tears and bent
The negatives are all in excellent condition, and the receipt is in good condition.
It is unknown who originally owned this envelope or how it came to be stored in the Museum Workshop. In terms of intellectual property it is assumed that they were taken with the intent of recording the event of the Shires re-opening.
The value of the item considered for accession lies in its value as an intact example of early camera development and a record of a significant Toodyay development. The photos taken for this camera set are accessioned into the current collection but given the relatively good condition and completeness of this artefact set, it is considered to have value simply as a rare and representative example of its type.
