State Library of Western Australia: WA Theatre Ephemera

These datasets contain bibliographic records and some persistent URLs for posters and programs of WA Theatre productions and company ephemera; as well as out of copyright photographs of theatre and picture venues, events, people and places connected to the theatre sector held within the State Library of Western Australia’s collection.

As a whole, these two sets provide a glimpse into the theatrical landscape of WA, from amateur societies to University theatres to professional companies; the venues which housed performances, and the people who put them on.

The URLs in the "WA Theatre Posters, Programs, Ephemera" dataset contain a mixture of digitised images from the collection and the permanent bibliographic record in the State Library of Western Australia catalogue: URLS starting with “https://purl.slwa.wa.gov.au” or “https://slwa.wa.gov.au/images” are digitised items.

URLs starting with “https://encore.slwa.wa.gov.au" are bibliographic records.

The URLs in the "WA Theatre venues events people places 1896-1955" dataset are all digitised images.

Some records have multiple URLs collated into one field. Each unique URL is separated by the ^ symbol and each corresponding caption appears sequentially in the following field. The captions are also separated by the ^ symbol.
