So I went to sell stuff and of course I found something! 😂 This lovely Art Deco Plate was hand-painted in Sydney in Aug 1928. Does anyone happen to recognize the monogram? MNJ? #artdeco #sydneyhistory #sydneyarthistory #australianporcelain #sydneyantiques #flowers #artdecoflowers #sydneyvintage

The name Sutherland Township was used for land sales in 1882 by the Holt-Sutherland Estate Land Company.

The use of the name Sutherland for the subdivision had been decided by the company in 1881.

Flashback to Sydney Days, and an afternoon High Tea. I remember it well! Always loved this place. There is a lack of respected heritage in Sydney, but I’m thankful that this place is one of the places still standing. Mind you, this is a new build compared to places I stroll through these days!!

We may have world news at our fingertips with mobile phones. But back in the day, newspapers were one of the only forms of world communication to the public! As the original occupants of our building, the Fairfax newspaper empire used to own this property with their printing production, letter pressing and journalists hard at work. Here, you can see the Sydney commuters stopping to read the day's news. Can you imagine that were the case in 2019!? For more on the hotel’s interesting history, read our blog https://www.radissonblugifts.com/history-beyond-the-blu/

Joy Amy Steel had just turned six when the #TreatyofVersailles was signed. ⁣
⁣
Her mother hand-stitched a cotton peace dress for her to wear at the Cabramatta Peace Day Parade in south-western Sydney on 19 July 1919. ⁣
⁣
#OTD 100 years ago, #PeaceDay celebrations were held in cities and towns across #Australia to mark the official end of #WWI.⁣
⁣
Streets were decorated, sports competitions held, hymns were sung and a minute’s silence observed for those whose lives were lost. ⁣
⁣
Sadly, peace did not last long. Just 20 years later, #WWII was declared and another generation of Australians would enlist to serve. ⁣
⁣
See how war and peace were experienced on the home front at our #QuickMarch exhibition.⁣

It was July 1947  Reggie was 19. The First thing that my Dad Reggie saw as he came into sight of Sydney Harbour with a boat filled with Holocaust Refugees with my Granny was the Ferries of Sydney . See pic just taken. 
As I walk home to do night time Memoirs , the golden ferries of  Sydney came into view. Those Stories fill my many waking moments. This has been the most moving and incredible experience of my life and we can’t wait to share it . Now , onto to Reggie, convinced he can squeeze in another 5 million stores ! #thestoriesitoldmyson

CHRISTOPHER PALMER: PERILS OF A PURSER | By David Morgan
•
Christopher Palmer arrived in #NewSouthWales as a civilian in 1788, accompanying his brother John Palmer (1760–1833), purser of HMS Sirius. Christopher soon began his own naval career, returning to England & serving on a series of ships, also becoming a purser. But he would be dogged by ill health while being pursued for decades by the Crown over a claimed debt, spending his last years cared for by his brother. The Palmer brothers are two of "St. John's #FirstFleeters." They are buried together at historic #StJohnsCemetery #Parramatta.

Read the full-length Chris Palmer biography [link in profile]

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:
"Old Parramattans" is a collection of 51 brand new @creatensw-funded biographical essays on people buried at #Australia's oldest surviving European #cemetery (1790). The open access #publichistory project will illuminate the significance of the cemetery itself as well as highlight the many incredible #heritage sites within walking distance of the #historic cemetery, making St. John's the true "Gateway to Old Parramatta."

Constructed in the early 1880s, Bare Island Fort was originally built to protect Sydney’s Botany Bay from military attack. The waters surrounding it are also one of the most popular diving and snorkeling spots in NSW (definitely on my list for a future scuba diving trip) 🐠 🦑🐬

Dundullimal had a special visit from historian Dr Catherine Bishop today. Dr Bishop is the author of 'Minding Her Own Business: Colonial businesswomen in Sydney' - a fascinating look at our early entrepreneurial businesswomen.
.
Dr Bishop is also interested in Colonial businesswomen in rural NSW and has been researching Dubbo women with help from Simone Taylor, Local Studies Officer at @macquarieregionallibrary. 📚
.

Dr Bishop was given a personal tour by Karen Hagan, Dundullimal Property Coordinator, Education and Cultural Programs, who dressed in a 1850s working women’s dress for the occassion! . 'Minding Her Own Business' is published by @newsouthbooks.

❤️ Our most loved tree has witnessed many special moments, from hot dates to first kisses and engagement parties. The tree was planted by Kathleen McGill, whose family ran the Oaks between 1918 – 1975 and then handed the keys to the Thomas Family, who run the Oaks till today. Could you guess what year the tree was planted?

🚂 Last train to Rookwood 💨 
I’m standing in front of Sydney’s Regent St train station, formerly known as Mortuary Railway Station. It was opened in 1869 for the sole purpose of transporting coffins to Rookwood Cemetery. The gates may have closed here long ago but I can’t help but feel that the walls are still tinged with the sadness of many who watched their loved ones make that journey to their final resting place.

Did you know 30,000+ bodies were buried beneath Central Station?⁣ ⁣
⁣
The #DevonshireStreetCemetery opened in 1820 on land bound by Sydney’s Elizabeth, Pitt and Devonshire streets – where Central now stands.⁣ ⁣
⁣
According to our senior curator Elise Edmonds, burials were made within every square inch of the vast cemetery, even under pathways!⁣ ⁣
⁣
It became so overcrowded that in the 1840s locals complained about foul-smelling gases, and were alarmed to see corners of coffins poking out of the ground!⁣ ⁣
⁣
Elise has spent months researching #CentralStation’s deep dark history for the Library’s new exhibition, #DeadCentral.⁣ ⁣
⁣
🎧 This haunting story is told through a 35-minute audio recording using your own device. We recommend that you bring your own headphones for the best sound experience. ⁣ ⁣
⁣
Dead Central opens tomorrow, Saturday 25 May.⁣

Working out after work with the amazing @jess_richards at Clark Park, Lavender Bay. Why I love it is this park has it all. Dogs, glorious views of Sydney Harbour, shade and sun, the entrance to Wendy's Secret Garden, brush turkeys, parrots and plenty of space to stretch and work out. And it's a 3 minute stroll from work so no excuses for not working out! And once you are done, catch a bus right across the road or a stroll to tons of cafes and restaurants for an after work bevy. ⁣
