The National Archives holds a large collection of photographs relating to Australian pioneer aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith. Many are held in the photographic collections of the Australian Overseas Information Service (AOIS) and are being progressively added to the PhotoSearch database. Searches using terms such as 'kingsford smith' or 'southern cross' will identify captions and enable you to view images that have been placed on PhotoSearch.
