State Library of NSW has recently digitised a small portion of the Sidney Riley Photographic Studios collection of glass plate negatives. As part of History Week 2013- Picture this we present Rozelle Brides a small collection of Inter – war Wedding and couple photographs taken at 687 Darling Street Rozelle between 1939 -1945.

1928 Add for Sidney Riley Studio.

Some local residents recall having their childhood photographs taken there they recall big wedding groups going up to the studios after weddings at the local churches and family members who made wedding veils featured in the photographs. If you have any memories of the Sidney Riley Studios we would love to record your story to add to our collection.
