Chinese - Australian Historical Images in Australia

A database of historical images of Chinese immigrants and their descendants in Australia. It primarily draws on the photographic holdings of the Museum of Chinese Australian History but also includes photographs from other online archives, publications and private family collections. Built into the database is the beginnings of an encyclopaedia of Chinese-Australian history, complete with bibliography, which provides contextual information about the images in the database. CHIA is a joint project between the Chinese Museum and La Trobe University ( Asian Studies Program ), supported by the Australian Research Council and the Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre ( Melbourne University ).
