The history of Orange over the past 75 years has been captured by the Central Western Daily's own photographers.
Many others have also contributed to recording the city's growth.
Photos from various sources have been used in our special feature stories to highlight the shared history between Orange and the Central Western Daily.
The Orange and District Historical Society has become custodian of the historic photos from the Central Western Daily's negative collection files.
Secretary Liz Edwards has been instrumental in locating many of the images and providing information for this feature.
In fact, she points out that photos were in short supply in the first 10 years of the Central Western Daily's life.
That changed in 1955 when the paper employed its first photographer and installed a German-built Klischograph machine that enabled a printing block to be engraved from a photo using an electronic process.
Copies of the Central Western Daily, in the form of bound copies and on microfilm are stored at the Orange City Library.
Staff assisted us in locating early editions.
The Australian National University/Noel Butlin Archives Centre has been digitising historic photos of hotels across NSW from the record cards of Tooths brewery inspectors.
Photos of Orange hotels from this collection are included in this feature.
Other photographers and collections deserving credit include Troy Pearson and the Collections of Central West Libraries.
