Historian Michael McKernan explores places underground where people live and work, such as the stone cellars at a pub in The Rocks and miners and pit ponies at the South Bulli Colliery. Images by Frank Hurley, Wolfgang Sievers and Jeff Carter.
Interview with Michael McKernan, author, about his book Underground Australia. McKernan says the book was not his idea, and he thought it was a strange idea when it was brought to him, but says the National Library has a fantastic collection, and part of their responsibility is to get it out to the widest possible audience, and they decided that a picture looking at Australians living and working underground would be a good way of exposing the collection. McKernan says there are some wonderful photographers featured, and some wonderful photographs. McKernan says one of the saddest parts of the book is that even children were jailed underground in Port Arthur. McKernan explains how other places are looking at building underground to increase the capacity of cities including Singapore.
