Press gallery: 1885

The press gallery, consisting of journalists who view the proceedings of the House of Representatives and report and comment on them through the media, has always played an important role in making the public aware of parliamentary business. By the mid-1880s, when this photograph was taken, the press gallery was an accepted part of the institution of Parliament.
