Painters working on Clegg Building, Newcastle Technical College, 1939

Thankyou to Hunter TAFE staff and community members who have donated items and information to our Hunter TAFE Historical Collection. It helps complete the jigsaw puzzle of our history in Technical Education and the role it has played in the Hunter community for the past 120 years.

This photograph found its way into our collection with some writing on the back indicating it was a group of painters working on the Clegg building (D Block), circa 1939. If you have any information regarding this photograph, possibly recognizing someone from the picture or knowing of someone who worked on the early buildings we would love to hear about it. Please post a comment below.
