How to contribute to Ideal Homes

Ideal Homes: Suburbia in Focus is an ongoing project and we are actively seeking your involvement, either by providing new material or by commenting on the existing content.

Old and contemporary photographs are particularly welcome and valuable to our research. If selected, we can digitally restore photographs - remove marks and scratches - prior to publication. There is no charge for this service and all photographs will be returned.

Here is an example of a restored photograph, a c.1910 postcard sent to us by Anne Morse in Surfers Paradise in Queensland, Australia. Click on each image to enlarge.
