Edward William Searle was an active photographer in Australia for much of the first half of the 20th century. He worked for J. W. Beattie in Hobart during 1911-1915. These photographs, however, do not largely appear in the National Library's vast collection of his work. Premier William McKell (1941-47) has presented this album: "To Mr. Charles P. Skouras, with very best wishes, from Wm. McKell, Premier of NSW Australia. 1/4/1945". Charles P. Skouras was a self-made theater magnate, owning all the theaters in St. Louis at one time, and eventually building an empire of over 650 theaters.
