I use the group of three previews to explain the writing strategy I am using in developing materials ahead of the Albury 75: Our Place, Our Story in April 2022. They are previews in two senses: they provide a viewer with an overview of what is to come; they are work-in-progress. I hope to refine, revise and to present a series of short videos, some of which will include moving images.
I thought it appropriate for a 75th anniversary to explore something of the character of Albury, something of its identity – by looking to its past. To do that I have followed loosely an approach developed by Graeme Davison and focused on three groups of planners, dreamers, visionaries. The planners or groups of planners were leaders involved in the beginnings of the town; in the inauguration of the city; and in imagining and re-imagining Albury in the present day.
I have selected three phases, three turning points, three thresholds, three sets of influential planners. And I do so visually. That has meant interrogating three sets of key visual evidence.
