If you are lucky enough to be in Sydney from September 7 to 15, there are a number of exhibitions to take in and the full program of events is available on the History Council of New South Wales website. For those of us who are not so fortunate, several of the exhibitions are viewable as on-line galleries; the featured pictorial displays are Australian Lebanese in the Picture, Through the Lens: Snapshots of Sydney and A Suitcase of Travelling Photographs.
