september 2001 memento 3 The ill-fated Australian-made Hartnett was supposed to become Australia's own car, but was run over by the Holden. Miss Australia finalist Wendy Hugles tries out the Hartnett 1945 before an admiring crowd. NAA: A1200, L3743 The black and white images in Behind the Wheel recall some of the vehicles that have choofed, chugged, puttered and purred across the Australian landscape over the last 80 years. This little journey in motoring nostalgia includes photographs of the familiar and not so familiar including a 1922 Armstrong Siddley, 1945 Hartnett, 1949 Pontiac, an Austin 7 Chummy, Morris Cowley, MG TD, Ford Cortina and even a Nagari Sports along with several incarnations of the ubiquitous Holden. The images were sourced from our photographic series including the Australian Overseas Information Service and Mildenhall collections. The motoring memorabilia comes from our rich copyright collection. Behind the Wheel and Unexpected Archives are on show until early next year.

She was quite amazed at the breadth of our copyright collection, remark- ing: 'Despite the fact that various collections throughout Australia specialise in certain fields, it was a wonder to me that in one afternoon, the Archives staff could assemble so many items that made such fantastic connections to my personal and professional life.'
