This presentation trowel celebrates the laying of a foundation stone in 1922 by Miss Amy Vickery (1867-1942), daughter of Ebenezer Vickery MLC. The building was the Strathfield school church which was located near her home 'Lauriston', built for her around 1907. Amy Vickery's wealth enabled her to devote her life to collecting stamps of the British Empire which, upon her death in 1942, was bequeathed to the Australian Museum. Since 1982 her renowned stamp collection which consists of over 1,800 mounted pages has been on permanent loan to the Powerhouse Museum.
