People used to send each other letters instead of emails. The National Archives has lots of letters – people writing into government, and government officials writing back. There are quite a few ‘concerned Australians’ who wrote into the government who have had their letters stored for future generations. I hope future generations enjoy them.



One of the cutest letters I’ve seen in the Archives – a suggestion for rocket design from a young boy to the scientists at Woomera. NAA: D250, 56/486 Part 1
