Anyone know when Passports started or became compulsory in Australia
I would have thought about 1900 -1914
I have a small photo of my great-grandfather
The family thinks it was a passport photo but he died in 1895
He came out to Aus sometime between 1851 and 1883

I have several old family photos that are of passport size so I'd say it's impossible from looking at the front if it's a Passport or ID Paper photo or not. That's why the back is of interest.
