Retired commercial photographer Ted Richards, holds his 1st and 1000th artefacts.
Above: Ted stands in the Annetts 'shop' display at the volunteer-run Old Courthouse Museum, Batemans Bay. Museum curator Myf Thompson told the Beagle: "Ted's role is very important in terms of recording our artefacts" '"They are little works of art. With his eye for lighting and layout, Ted can photograph anything from a tractor part to a corset, a 1940s hat to antique fishing lines and they come alive with interest and beauty.
"With his permission we are using some of his images on postcards and posters so that his work can be more widely appreciated."
