The Winter Photographic Collection


Founded by Ernest Albert Winter, Winter’s Studio opened in Cattley Street in 1909. The collection includes images of Burnie and many other areas of the North-West Coast, as well as photographs taken of weddings, social activities, sporting events and family portraits. The collection is extremely valuable as a pictorial history of Burnie.

We have chosen to reproduce a select few of the Winter Collection images, capturing Burnie in the early twentieth century.  

Copies of other photographs from the collection are available on request. Please email the museum via
