Almost 20 years of working life in the city has been captured and curated for an upcoming exhibition at the Orange Regional Museum.
The public is invited to attend the opening night of All in a Day's Work on June 6, to gain a rare insight into the daily working life of Orange district locals.
All in a Day's Work will give a glimpse of the city between 1955 and 1974, through photographs from the Central Western Daily's negative collection.
The exhibition will feature 78 photographs selected from more than 1.25 million negatives presented to the Orange and District Historical society as a gift from the CWD in 2010.
The collection has captured Orange residents going about their work day inside the old Emmco factory, firefighters from 50 years ago and early orchardists.
Orange Regional Museum, Public Engagement and Education Officer, Sally MacLennan said the thing that stood out to her about the negatives is their quality.
Ms MacLennan said some of the photographs have been blown up to poster size yet it is still possible to make out the "stitches on jumpers" and "expressions on faces."
The exhibition is curated by Elisabeth Edwards and Phil Stevenson of Orange and District Historical Society.
Ms Edwards will speak at the opening of the show alongside museum and gallery director Brad Hammond.
Attendees are invited to arrive for the opening of All in a Day's Work at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.
The exhibition will run from June 7 until October 13.
