The Art Gallery of New South Wales - Early Images


(Click on images to enlarge)

Mowing the lawn at the Art Gallery


The Art Gallery of New South Wales is a distinctive landmark in Sydney.

The date of the above photograph is unknown to me but I can advise the following:

The facade and old wing of the Art Gallery were built between 1896 and 1909.

The statue shown in the above photograph is by Gilbert Bayes and is called The Offerings of Peace.  It was made in 1923 and purchased  by the Art Gallery in 1924.

Mervyn Victor did not invent his motorised Victa lawn mower until 1952.
