October 31, 2019 –
Special, in-depth, curator-led tour of the Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection (CSL&RC), the library of Sydney Living Museums.
Since the 1980s, the CSL&RC has quietly and diligently amassed a collection focusing on the post-1788 history of the home in Australia, a collection that covers a range of material culture formats. Architectural pattern books, furniture design books, manufacturers’ trade catalogues and sample books published in both Australia and overseas shine a light on our houses, interiors and gardens. Many of these publications are not held by any other Australian library.
Tour numbers are limited to 30. Book tickets by going to this link.
