Valley of the Hunter River (1960)

Very interesting film made for the The Hunter Valley Co-operative Dairy Company Ltd in 1960. It is digitised from a 16mm film reel that is in relatively poor condition, hence the quality of the film. It was digitised in April 2014 for the University of Newcastle’s Cultural Collections (Auchmuty Library) Australia.
