CLN The Rodoni Archive
The Thomas James ('TJ') Rodoni Archive is a collection of glass plate and film negatives taken by Thomas James Rodoni (1882-1956) during the early 1900s up until the 1930s.

The photographs document Australia’s first military conflict of the First World War, the fall of German New Guinea. The Rodoni Archive also contains images from the lead up to the Great War, including what appears to be recruitment drives across Sydney and Newcastle. There are also images believed to be taken at places around Lithgow and Newcastle.

The negatives were donated in February 2014 to the University of Newcastle (UON) Cultural Collections by his son, Bill Rodoni, with the assistance of Charles and Frances Fussell.

They have been digitised and made freely available to the wider global research community thanks to the generosity of the Rodoni Family and The Vera Deacon Regional History Fund.
