    Public

    Originally the Pottery was a part of the Red Cross Industries here in Sydney, N.S.W.. In 1916 the mission of Red Cross Industries was expressed in the press as being twofold: "first, to train women to become instructors to the returned sick and wounded men at No. 4 General Hospital, Randwick: secondly, to provide workshops where men can be fully trained in industries and handicrafts suitable for those incapable of heavy work."

    There was an exhibition at the Sydney Town Hall in September 1916 of the products created by disabled soldiers at No. 4 General Hospital, Randwick ........ “It is many months now since light rafia basket making was undertaken by a band of women workers, who were taught by a highly trained voluntary Instructor, in order that they might in turn instruct soldiers desirous of taking up the work at the Randwick Military Hospital. Fifty soldiers have already been taught. In the workshops at 24 Ash-street, city, a thoroughly competent basket worker, Mr. Arthur Widdowes, has been engaged as instructor to the men who who wish to learn cane basketmaking as a trade.”

    The crafts represented at the beginning included: ”At the Town Hall yesterday one saw some of the work which our returned soldiers have been able to do in spite of their injuries - splendid woodcarving, leather-work, and basket-work, and toys that look as if they had been turned out of some first-class factory abroad. ”

    In November 1918 mention is made of the ‘wounded soldiers’ space at the annual exhibition of the Arts and Crafts Society:
    ”THE ARTS AND CRAFTS Successful Sales at the Exhibition
    Lady Davidson opened the Arts and Crafts Exhibition in the Education Building gallery on Tuesday afternoon, and since then the show has enjoyed a large influx of visitors daily. The red seal appears with appreciable frequency upon work in every section. The introduction of Queensland and Victorian exhibitors has roused a great deal of interest, and visitors are much struck with the marked diversity of the work. The leather work seems to have improved in excellence of color, design and workman ship. The pottery and painted China have commanded remarkable sales, as also have unique and quaint calendars. The work of the wounded soldiers under the hospital handicrafts has a corner to itself, and the exhibits are of considerable merit. The Red Cross Soldiers' Toy Industry is a large and interesting exhibit. On Friday all the jointed wooden animals had their tails well elevated, with the British lion in the advance guard, over the cheering war news. The exhibition is open on Saturday afternoons.”

    Late in 1919 we read that the Arts and Crafts Society had added the work from the hospitals in their annual exhibition: “ARTS AND CRAFTS EXHIBITION. -+- The annual exhibition of the Society of Arts and Crafts of New South Wales will be opened at 3 o'clock this afternoon by Lady Davidson. The exhibition will be at the Education Department's building, and will contain, among other exhibits, work In china, pottery, basketwork, jewellery, and pyrography. The Society has devoted part of the space for an exhibition of Red Cross hospital handicrafts. Specimens of the various handwork done by invalided soldiers will be on view.”

    In November 1920 Miss Gladys Owen spoke at a Red Cross conference about the plans for new Industries supporting veterans. But these comments signalled new directions: "There were men who had both legs amputated above the knee, and who could not use artificial limbs. Those men were asking for the establishment for them of an industry on the same lines as the Blind Soldiers' Tea Co. The Red Cross had suggested the establishment of a pottery in that connection. They hoped to have their own particular colors in pottery. They hoped to make fire proof crockery, which had been asked about." ( Northern Star Lismore, NSW. Tue 2 Nov 1920 Page 6 )

    By November 1920 we read that "Lady Cullen will open the Christmas show of work at the Red Cross Hospital Handicrafts, Camden Buildings, on Wednesday, at 2.30 p.m. All the goods which will be offered for competition and for sale are the work of returned sick or wounded soldiers. ...... A feature of this year's display will be a quantity of beautiful pottery in the form of vases, flower bowls, jardinieres and little jugs and basins."

    It was probably in January 1921 that the Red Cross established a workshop for double amputees to create pottery here in Sydney.

    "The initial premises were established in York-street in 1921, but only green ware was turned out, the baking and glazing being done at the works of Bakewell. Bros., Limited." ..... "A few months later the men were removed to the present factory in York-street, Redfern," .... "Colonel Pearce is the general manager, and there is also an accountant, works manager, foreman moulder, and travelling salesman. Four men are employed in the kiln room, and 12 in the workroom. A midday meal is provided for the men at a nominal cost." (SMH of Wed 21 Feb 1923 Page 12 )

    This is a good summary of the early days of the pottery but it needs some amplification:

    Originally the number of men at the pottery was ten. Although there was talk of increasing the number of veterans working there, by 1923 the numbers had only increased to fourteen.

    ”DISABLED SOLDIERS CRAFT

    The Red Cross kitchen is being turned to a new use. Lately it has housed the clothing depot, which is now going to its new quarters at Rose Hall, and ten permanently incapacitated soldiers will be initiated into the mystery of making pottery. They will be able to do this work even seated on their invalid chairs and probably their numbers will be largely added to, as has been the case with the other industries Their work will be distinguished as D S C pottery (disabled soldiers’ craft).
    The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Friday 7 January 1921 p 8
    This is the first reference found to the D S C pottery (disabled soldiers’ craft) pottery in the Sydney press. Note the early date of January 7 1921. It also gives an address: The Red Cross kitchen.
    The address was at the corner of York and Margaret streets, Sydney. The kitchen had closed around June 1920 and then briefly became a clothing depot. It was then converted into premises for a new Red Cross project to be known as “D S C pottery” - “Disabled Soldiers’ Craft pottery”

    So the earliest name of the pottery was DSC rather than DSP.

    On Trove I have been able to find a few references to that name ….two in January 1921, another in August that year and yet another in November of that year.

    When the Kitchen building opened in February 1918 it was described as : “70ft x 40ft, the walls 12ft high, built of weatherboard and fibro-cement. Inside there is the large kitchen, fitted with 10 stoves, hooded so as to carry off all products of combustion. There are the necessary tables and bins for holding the cookery, a cool room, pantry, storeroom, dressing-room, Included In which are a bathroom and the usual offices.”

    As “The Red Cross kitchen” the premises had been built by the Defence Department into a replacement for an earlier, original “The Red Cross kitchen” which had been begun in 1916 in Wynyard Street. However, the “Wynyard-street premises proved In time to be altogether inadequate for the need to be fulfilled, and It was necessary to seek both larger accommodation and a more capable plant. The Defence Department recognised the value of the kitchen as an adjunct to hospital treatment, and erected at the top of Margaret-street the building now occupied.
    There Mrs. Holdship and her helpers are daily engaged In the preparation of meals and invalid food for about 1500 men; sometimes the number runs up to 2000. No meals are served at the kitchen. All the material cooked goes to Randwick Military Hospital, the Garrison Hospital, and to Liverpool. In addition about 50 returned soldiers working at Red Cross Industries In various parts of the city are supplied dally with a hot meal. The number of voluntary assistants enrolled now totals 125”

    When it closed in June 1920 the intention was to ready it for conversion into a new activity of the Red Cross here in Sydney. Six months later it was housing the ten members of the newly created D S C pottery.

    An article in the SMH of May 1921 fills in a bit more detail. An exhibition was held by the Red Cross at the Sydney Town Hall ... The Red Cross Exhibition and V.A.D. Fair .... on Monday May 23:

    "Pottery.
    The Red Cross executive has introduced pottery manufacture as a new industry for the benefit of disabled soldiers. There are at present sixteen men engaged in this work at a factory at the corner of York and Market (sic) streets. The object is to make all sorts of art pottery, and to deal principally with the wholesale trade There, was on view yesterday various articles of ornamental pottery, mostly vases and ornaments. in a partially manufactured state, and the artistic designing and moulding showed that the returned men were exhibiting a remarkable aptitude for this work. lt is intended shortly to remove the industry to larger premises, where the men will have their own kiln. Miss Rankin is in charge of the industry as voluntary director, representing the Red Cross executive."
    Important to note here is the role of Miss Rankin as voluntary director of the Pottery. In November 1920: "Mr. Vicars, Miss Rankin, and Miss Collin were added to the Red Cross industries committee."

    Miss Rankin had earlier been mentioned in January 1921 when "The Red Cross Hospital Handicrafts are transferring their premises to No 7 Wynyard street, better known as the old fruit and vegetable depot Miss Rankin will be the hon director of the shop." Again Miss Rankin also appears in an article in November 1921: "Their next visit was paid to the disabled soldiers' craft, where a number of badly disabled soldiers are working at pottery. Here Miss Rankin showed them round, and the visitors were greatly interested in the men and their work."(Daily telegraph 11 Nov 1921.) - Am I right in thinking that they were no longer in the city at this time ??? The visit mentions movement of the party from Elizabeth street to the pottery and then on to Bourke street.

    Also note here that the address was not at the corner of Market and York streets according to this article.

    "At the exhibition, which will be held in the Town Hall next week, the beautiful tweeds and suitings made by the soldiers of the weaving industry will be on sale. Other exhibits will include pottery made by the newly established Disabled Soldiers' Craft, which has its workshop at the corner of Margaret and York streets, in the building which formerly housed the workers at the Red Cross kitchen."

    They were still there in late May prior to the move to the new premises in Zetland.
    The identity of "Miss Rankin is in charge of the industry as voluntary director, representing the Red Cross executive" is important to note.
    The new address of the pottery was to be 116 Walker-street, Zetland rather than in Redfern as normally seen in references. These days the address is Waterloo rather than Zetland.

    The number of workers at the site was said to be around 24.

    The selling price of the pottery was the same in the country as in Sydney ; the Sydney showrooms being at 11 and 13 Bond-street. it was also for sale at the Red Cross Handicrafts Depot, No. 7 Wynyard-street.

    On June 30, 1921 the article appeared in the Daily Telegraph :"FOR MAIMED SOLDIERS.
    The Limbless and Maimed Soldiers' Association is having a concert at the Sydney Town Hall to-night to raise funds for the establishment of suitable businesses for maimed soldiers unable to follow the ordinary occupations of life. Mr. Walter Bentley is hon. organiser for the entertainment, in conjunction with Dr. Stopford and Mrs. Mackinnon. The concert will be under the patronage of the Governor-General and Lady Forster and the State Governor and Dame Margaret Davidson. It Is reported that about 1000 men returned to this State limbless or maimed, or having lost one eye, and about 30 now remain unemployed; but the number fluctuates. The Red Cross has given great help by establishing the double-amputation men in the pottery business, and many of these are accommodated at Rose Hall, where there is special provision for the wheeled chairs and motorcycles used by them.
    The object of the concert Is to establish a hostel for the men who have not yet re-entered suitable employment, and to endeavor to establish them in some business which will make them self-supporting."

    According to advertisements in 1924 the pottery would have begun around 1920 -1921 (it was said to have begun "four years" earlier). It was started by the Australian Red Cross but around 1922 the pottery got into financial problems. Messrs Swain, Blackwood and Godfrey were the three men who came to the aid of the pottery and supplied the necessary capital ("some thousands of pounds") and establisbed the workers free of all liability. Prior to this there was support too from the Arts community here in Sydney and a series of events raised money to support the venture in 1922. It was early in 1922 too the company registered its familiar mark: Daily Commercial News and Shipping List (Sydney, NSW ) Wed 18 Jan 1922 : "Porcelain and Earthenware. China earthenware: Device of a cross and word 'Pottery D.S.' — The persons trading as Disabled Soldiers' Pottery, N.S.W."

    The masked ball in August 1922 seems to have been crucial in the popularity of the ware:
    "THE ARTISTS' BALL : A GAY AND BRILLIANT SCENE By common consent, the Artists' Masquerade Ball which was held at the Sydney Town Hall on Monday night with the object of endowing the pottery industry in which a number of disabled soldiers are engaged, was the most spectacular event of the kind ever held in the city. The body of the hall was thronged by young and old in all kinds of fancy dress, and the galleries were crowded with delighted spectators. Many of the costumes were very striking, and the decorations were wonderful. The ball is expected to realise over £3000."
    "Disabled Soldiers' Pottery
    An interesting and varied selection of the pottery made by the disabled soldiers Is now for sale at the Red Cross Handicrafts Depot, No. 7 Wynyard-street. Owing to the success of the Artists' Masquerade Ball, so many people have become interested In the work of the disabled men, and they will no doubt be glad to avail themselves of the opportunity of purchasing the useful and beautiful pieces manufactured at the factory." (The SUN August 25,1922)

    This article of 1923 gives more detail about the timeline and the people involved: "DISABLED SOLDIERS' DISPLAY.

    An attractive display is being made in one of the Park-street windows of Murdoch’s, Limited, of the wares manufactured at the Disabled Soldiers' Pottery, Redfern, and it is exciting favourable comment, the general opinion being that the appearance and finish compare more than favourably with similar imported goods. The works were started under the auspices of the Red Cross Society, the idea being to give employment to disabled soldiers, and most of the men employed are cases of double amputation. The only able-bodied employees are the experts. The Initial premises were established in York-street in 1921, but only green ware was turned out, the baking and glazing being done at the works of Bakewell. Bros., Limited. A few months later the men were removed to the present factory in York-street, Redfern, and gradually what was practically only an experiment has developed into a business proposition. The output was only about 140 pieces per week, but the construction of the second kiln has increased this by another 750 pieces.

    Colonel Pearce is the general manager, and there is also an accountant, works manager, foreman moulder, and travelling salesman.

    Four men are employed in the kiln room, and 12 in the workroom. A midday meal is provided for the men at a nominal cost.

    This is made possible by the fact that the establishment has its own kitchen, presided over by Miss Clayton, assisted by a Voluntary Aid. In the past most of the articles turned out have been of an ornamental character, such as floating bowls, vases, etc., but recently there has been a large and varied output of jugs and a very fine specimen of teapot has been moulded, and will, soon be put on the market. The factory is practically self-contained. In that it prepares its own clay, makes its own moulds, and does its baking and glazing. A certain number of the employees will receive a percentage of the profit--when the business shows a credit balance--and as the works extend an effort will be made to absorb the disabled men whose names appear on the waiting list. (SMH of Wed 21 Feb 1923   Page 12 )



    "JENOLAN POTTERY The Disabled Soldiers' Pottery has made good in establishing the industry in Australia. It has taken four years of continual experiments to bring the wares to such perfection.
    The pottery is owned by the men themselves, men who have lost their limbs in the service of the company.
    It has been mainly through the generosity of three Sydney gentlemen who have assisted the men with some thousands of pounds, and now success has been achieved, they have handed the pottery over to them free of liability. A quantity of this ware has been sent to the great exhibition in London, and one of the largest manufacturers of pottery in England stated that, it was second to none in the whole world. The whole profits of the business are to be entirely used in increasing the works and to give more employment to limbic and disabled men. Messrs. Campbell and Co., Ltd., are showing a large assortment of this unique ware. They have a large variety of shapes and colorings, and the prices are much below any similar high-cfass ware obtained from abroad."

    In August 1922 The Studio tells about an auction of wares to fund the Disable Soldiers' Pottery : "THE STUDIO. - SALE OF ANTIQUES AND CURIOS. A sort of Moorish arcade, walled and roofed with gilded trellis work, its deep alcoves set with miniature cypress trees in pots, and lit by a galaxy of alabaster lamps, made an artistic setting for the collection of antiques which was donated to aid the funds of the Disabled Soldiers' Pottery Industries in Sydney. The Governor, accompanied by' Dame Margaret Davidson, opened the proceedings (which took place in David Jones's art room, Sydney) on Wednesday, August 16, and Mr. F. E. de Groot sold the gifts by auction, assisted by Miss Hunter Brown. "
    An article in the Sunday Times (Sydney, NSW : 1895 - 1930) Sunday 11 November 1923 p 15 sets the scene about what was happening in Sydney at the time for returned servicemen:

    "Red Cross Handicrafts
    Those in search of charming and unusual articles for Christmas gifts will be well advised to visit the Red Cross Hospital Handicrafts Shop, 7 Wynyard street, where a new stock of goods is now displayed. These are the work of disabled and incapacitated returned soldiers, who receive the total proceeds of their work. Some exquisite examples of brass work most reasonably priced are for sale.

    These include tea trays, ash trays, small pin trays, vases made from shell cases, and cedar lined cigarette boxes. A fluted brass candlestick in antique design by Mr. Barford can be obtained for one guinea. Mr. Aldred exhibits plaited whips and leather work.

    Utilitarian yet fascinatingly gay are the raffia billy baskets, which picnickers would find a godsend and which could also be used for marketing. Shopping baskets, trays, teapot stands and work baskets, all of raffia, are on view. The pottery from the disabled soldiers' factory at Redfern includes vases, jugs and bowls in artistic many shapes. Mr. Hielman and Mr. Mackenzie show delightful examples of poker work on wood, in the form of floating flower bowls, vases, ash trays, and fruit stands and dishes, an innovation which should prove popular.

    The suede work and leather work, for which the Red Cross Handicrafts have become famous, are up to their usual high standard. A variety of useful knick-knacks can be obtained at little cost."

    As mentioned earlier the Red Cross handed over control of the Pottery in 1923. Note that at the same time the Red Cross handed over control of the DISABLED SOLDIERS' TOY INDUSTRY another of their ventures to "Mr. PENROSE, late Manager of the Industry, will carry on the business on his own behalf, under the name of DISABLED SOLDIERS' UTILITY MANUFACTURE, from the 6th July, 1923, and Disabled Soldiers will still be employed by him."
    In the case of the Disabled Soldier's Pottery the Red Cross in the same edition of the SMH of Friday 20 July 1923 issued this notice:
    "DISABLED SOLDIERS' POTTERY.
    TAKE NOTICE that by Agreement dated the 2nd day of July, 1923, made between the Australian Red Cross Society, New South Wales Division, through its Chairman, Mr. Russell Sinclair, of the one part, and Messrs L. Blackwood, E. Godfrey, A. Capper, and H. C. Swain, of the other part, the Australian Red Cross Society has handed over the business formerly carried on by the Society at Walker-street, Redfern, under the name of the "Disabled Soldiers' Pottery," to Messrs. L. Blackwood, E. Godfrey, A. Capper, and H. C. Swain, who, from the 2nd day of July, 1923, will be carrying on the Pottery Business at the same address. All amounts owing by or to the Disabled Soldiers' Pottery Industry at 2nd day of July, 1923, will be paid or collected by the Australian Red Cross Society.

    THOMAS R. STEEL,

    Superintendent Red Cross Society.


    In 1924 a letter seems to have been sent to country newspapers by the secretary of the Disabled Soldiers' Pottery, Mr. P. Harnock. The letter then became the basis for a series of articles all over the state publicising the wares called Jenolan Art Ware.
    The earliest mention of Jenolan Ware was in July of 1924 in the Wellington Times: "JENOLAN' POTTERY WARE.

    There is on view at Mr. F. C. Wall's some splendid samples of the Jenolan pottery ware, which is manufactured in Australia by returned soldiers, who have lost their limbs.
    There is a big variety of shapes and sizes and colorings, and goes to show that there is no need for the imported articles when such high class work is done in our own country. Samples of the work has also been sent to the Exhibition in London, and the manufacturers of one of the largest potteries in the world says it is second to none in the whole world."

    POTTERY-WARE
    DISABLED SOLDIERS' POTTERY
    The Disabled Soldiers' Pottery, Redfern, Sydney, has forwarded to the 'Eagle' Office, per Mr. Barringham, Vincent Street, a specimen of their justly celebrated "Jenolan" pottery-ware. This pottery is owned by the men themselves—men who have lost their limbs in the service of their country. It has taken four years' continual experiments to bring the ware to such perfection that they can now compete with the world's best. This has been mainly brought about through the generosity of three Sydney gentlemen who have helped the men with some thousands of pounds. Now success has been achieved the pottery is being handed over to them free of liability. A quantity of this pottery has been sent to the great exhibition at Wembeley, and one of the largest manufacturers of pottery in England expressed his opinion that it was second to none. The whole profit of the business is to be entirely used in expanding the pottery and giving employment to more limbless and disabled men. Mr. Barringham is showing a large assortment of this unique ware, in a large variety of shapes and colorings, and the prices are much below any similar high-class ware obtained from abroad.

    It was also used as the base for advertising text as in this ad that appeared in Narandera in August 1924:
    "Helping our Disabled Soldiers to Help Themselves
    Hankinson's Limited Are now showing A Special Display of Antique Pottery which is recognised to rank favourably with the finest in the world. Made in Australia by Disabled Australian Soldiers, and sold by HANKINSON'S LIMITED Call and inspect this display of Artistic Jenolan Art Ware"

    On one occasion the text of the letter became part of the advertisement. It has some added text pertinent to the store concerned.
    Copy of Letter from the Secretary of the Pottery:-

    "We may state that this pottery is owned by the men themselves — men who have lost their limbs in the service of their country.
    "It has taken four years of continual experiments to bring the Ware to such perfection that we can now compete with the world's best.
    "This has been mainly brought about through the generosity of three Sydney gentlemen, who have helped the men with some thousands of pounds. Now that success has been achieved, the Pottery has been handed over to them free of liability.
    "A quantity of this pottery has been sent to the great exhibition in London. One of the largest manufacturers of pottery in England stated it was second to none in the whole world !
    "We may add that the whole profits of the business are to be entirely used in expanding the Pottery, and giving employment to more disabled and limbless men.
    "Mr. E. E. Newell (Uncle Ernie) , of Murwillumbah, is showing a large assortment of this unique ware. He has a targe variety of shapes and colorings, and the prices are much below any similar high-class ware obtained from abroad.
    "Thanking you sincerely for your promise to assist us in making this entirely Australian product locally known. Yours faithfully.— "DISABLED SOLDIERS' POTTERY, "P. HARNOCK, Secretary."

    This article appeared in the Sun in June 1924 :
    LIMBLESS SOLDIERS
    Help in Pottery Venture
    The Premier (Sir George Fuller) has received from Mr. P. Harnock, secretary of the Jenolan Pottery, Redfern, a letter expressing appreciation of facilities granted to enable a traveller being sent through the country districts for six months.
    Although the 23 returned limbless soldiers who are engaged in the business on a co-operative basis are turning out pottery, the financial results have not so far warranted the expense of sending out travellers, although it is believed that good business can be done in country centres.
    A request was made to the Premier for a free railway pass to enable an experiment to he made, and this was readily granted.

    in the whole world. The whole
    profit of the business is to be
    entirely used in expanding the pottery
    and giving employment to more
    disabled and limbless men. It is
    an entirely Australian product and
    the bigger success it has the higher
    percentage of our disabled soldiers
    will be given a livelihood. Have a
    look at this unique ware in Mr
    Bourke's window and you will at
    once see that it is of the best quality
    at the lowest prices. We wish the
    venture every success and trust the
    public will purchase no other and
    thus show a sense of duty to the
    brave lads who did so much for
    them.

    'JENOLAN' POTTERY.
    A fine specimen of Jenolan pottery has been sent along to the 'Champion' Office by the returned soldier manufacturers. The pottery is made and owned by the returned men themselves — those men who lost their limbs in the service of their country.
    It has taken four years of continual experiments to bring the ware to such perfection as to enable the manufacturers to compete with the world's best. This has been mainly brought about through the generosity of three Sydney gentlemen, who have assisted the men with some thousands of pounds, and now success has been achieved, the pottery is being handed over to them free of liabilities. A
    quantity of this ware has' been sent to the great Exhibition in London, where one of the largest manufacturers of pottery in England expressed his opinion that it was second to none in the whole world.

    LIMBLESS SOLDIERS Help in Pottery Venture The Premier (Sir George Fuller) has received from Mr. P. Harnock, secretary of the Jenolan Pottery, Redfern, a letter expressing appreciation of facilities granted to enable a traveller being sent through the country districts for six months. Although the 23 returned limbless soldiers who are engaged in the business on a co-operative basis are turning out pottery, the financial results have not so far warranted the expense of sending out travellers, although it is believed that good business can be done in country centres. A request was made to the Premier for a free railway pass to enable an experiment to he made, and this was readily granted.

    THE STUDIO. SALE OF ANTIQUES AND CURIOS. A sort of Moorish arcade, walled and roofed with gilded trellis work, its deep alcoves set with miniature cypress trees in pots, and lit by a galaxy of alabaster lamps, made an artistic setting for-the col lection of antiques which was donated to aid the funds of the Disabled Soldiers' Pot tery Industries in Sydney. The Governor, accompanied by' Dame Margaret Davidson, opened the proceedings (Avhich took place in David Jones's art room, Sydney) on Wednesday, August 16, and Mr. F. E. de (j root sold the gifts by auction, assisted by Miss Hunter Brown. The collection was miscellaneous, and included an old Moorish lantern, also a Chinese battle pike, an uncompromising looking weapon of elaborately carved braBS, with a hobgoblin .of the meat pronounced type on its handle. A third edition of JSsop's Fables, pub lished in 1699, was interesting. It is an enormous leather-bound volume, with brass clasps, and contains as a preface "Reflec tions" by Sir Kobert Lestrarige; a copy No. 2 of the Anzac Memorial Book (of which only 50 copies were printed) con taining the names of all who landed on Gallipoli; and an etching contributed by each member of the Painter-Etchers* So ciety were among the gifts. w A Norman Lindsay etching brought 94 guineas, and a collection of the beautiful pottery made by the disabled soldiers found a ready sale. A round tabic, that might accommodate a number of knights, was made of a 6lab of slate and painted rather melodramatically with fruit and flowers. A huge black crab of ebony, with protruding «yes and formidable claws, was so- fash ioned that his back formed the lid of a velvet-lined jewel case. Some Chinese carv ings. old china (and some not old), with many pictures, were in the collection. A total of £300 was made by this sale of gifts, and this sum will be used to augment the fund for building and equipping a workshop for disabled soldiers.

    The artistic..community of Sydney is rather on its mettle regarding the forth coming artists' masquerade ball, to be held on August 21 m aid of the disabled soldiers' pottery industry, and the en- tertainment promises to be something quite out of the ordinary. Masks and dominos or masks and fancy dress are essential for dancers, and some of these will be unique. Mammoth cardboard figures have been contributed by well known artists, and a row of these super creatures, standing around under a mov- ing fermamcnt of fantastic balloons and the flashing and whirling of coloured lights, will make a memorable scene. The basement is to be a cabaret, where revel lers can dance and sup, and a miniature theatre, a caricaturist's studio, and other things are among the promised novel- ties.

    Masquerade Artists' Ball. The committee of the Masquerade Ball (on the programme for August 21, and bound to be .one of the chief successes of the dancing season) is representative of the Roval Art Society, the Site of Artists, and Society of Women Painters, and the Society of Etchers and Painters. The cause is a deserving one—the disabled soldiers' pottery, which, to say nothing of the promised pomp and splendour of the affair and the novel decorative ideas of the master minds of great artists, should be sufficient inducement to draw a big crowd of dancing enthusiasts and patriotic patrons, who were tront rankers on the advisory committees to urge our soldiers on to war. Such artists as Messrs. J R Jackson, W. Lister Lister, Will Ash- ton, J. S. Watkins A. Clit, J. Muir Auld, A. Datillo Rubbo, Harris, Miss Florence-Rodway, and others are interesting themselves in the decorative schemes, which will be of a Bohemian character and new to Sydney. Miss Theo. Cowan, the well-known sculptoress, will arrange the corner of the artist's studio set aside for sculpture, fitted up in the basement of the Town Hall at the Artists' Ball, and has enlisted the sympathy of other sculptors, who have promised to find clay and tools and pieces of artistry to help give the true atmosphere of a modelling studio.

    Among the useful Institutions which have been started to enable maimed returned soldiers to earn a livelihood is the Disabled Soldiers' Pottery, at Walker street. Zetland, where surprisingly artistic specimens of ceramic ware are now being manufactured, and that with a skill and taste which has excited the admiration of pottery manufacturers in England.
    The industry has been the result of a hard and gallant fight for support, and its success from a business point of view is due to the generosity of three Sydney men (Messrs. Swain, Blackwood, and Godfrey), who supplied the necessary capital, and establisbed the workers free of all liability.
    The products, which are termed Jenolan ware, consist of exquisite Jars, vases and urns, float bowls and Jardinieres, wide-topped smooth sided jugs, teapots, "Toby" Jugs, and pin and powder bowls. The clay from which these articles are manufactured is found in New South Wales, and is especially suitable for the Australian climate. The exquisite finish of the work, its perfection of line. and charm of subdued colour, have been pronounced by British
    experts to be second to no other production of ceramic ware. The hope is entertained that, if a big enough demand can be created, this industry can be expanded, and more disabled or crippled soldiers will be absorbed and made self-supporting. Mr. P. Harnock. the secretary to the Rejected Volunteers'
    Association, represents the pottery, and is now in Newcastle with a view to furthering its activities.

    Disabled Soldiers' Pottery The Disabled Soldiers' Pottery works is turning out a varied assortment of ornaments, which they term "Jenolan art ware," from ; the fact of the 'Colourings , being similar to those seen in the famous caves. Vases, flower dishes, urns, of all shapes and colours, suitable for Christmas gifts, offer to extending donors a chance of assisting those who assisted the Empire in the great conflict. The goods are marked D. S. Pottery, and form a distinct departure in the class of ware usually placed on the market. This pottery belongs, to the men themselves; men, who have lost their limbs in the service of the country. It has taken four years of continuous experiment to bring the ware to such perfection that they can now compete with the world's best. This has mainly been brought about through the generosity of three Sydney gentle- men who have assisted the men with some thousands of pounds. Now success has been achieved, pottery is being handed over to them free of liability. A quantity of this ware was sent to the great Exhibition in London, where one of the largest mauufac- turers of pottery in England expressed his opinion that it was second to none in the whole world. The whole of the profit of the business is to be used in extending the works and giving more employ- ment to limbless and disabled men. Mr G. Rolfe, jeweller, of Cooma, himself a returned soldier, is shewing a large assortment of this unique ware in many shapes and colourings, and the prices are much below any similar high class ware obtained from abroad, The Sydney office is at 116 Walker-street, Redfern. The selling price is the same in the country as in Sydney ; the showrooms being at 11 and 13 Bond-street.*

"The promotion and encouragement of various arts and crafts, and the development of the use of Australian materials and motif in work and design." Those are the objects of the N.S.W. Society of Arts and Crafts, which holds periodical exhibitions and sales of works of art, and which has become favour- ably known to art-lovers in recent years. Each year, about October, there is a large and very comprehensive display of goods, and smaller exhibitions are held at intervals. Painting on china and pottery, leather work, art jewellery, pyrography, wood-carving, metal-work, sketches in black and white, rep- resent most of the activities of members of the society. The various articles, before they may be exhibited, must be approved by a competent selection committee, and the latter sets a very high standard indeed. This encourages members to do good work, and also gives buyers a guarantee that they are obtaining goods of high quality. The society keeps "Australian designs and materials" con- stantly before members, and the motif notice- ably runs through most of the designs. The society has been ten years in exist- ence, and it now has nearly 80 members. Last year the receipts for goods sold on behalf of members totalled £505, and the society finish- ed the year with a credit balance of £77. Valuable war work has been done, and mem- bers, in many cases, are teaching arts and crafts to disabled soldiers. Owing to the prior calls of patriotic work, the society's design exhibition was postponed, and will be held, together with the main exhibition, at the end of October. The members are now preparing for a small exhibition of artis- tic goods, which will take place in the so- ciety's rooms, 56 Hunter-street, next week, from Monday until Friday.

There Mrs. Holdship and her helpers are dally engaged In the preparation of meals and in- valid food for about 1500 men; sometimes the number runs up to 2000. No meals are served at the kitchen.

    "The working of the industries," the report states, " is still being carried on, the baskets and toys under the same conditions, but the weaving has been sold to a company, formed of the men in the industry, with representatives of the Red Cross on the board of directors. A new pottery-making Industry, known as the D.S.C. (disabled soldiers' crafts), has been started for the benefit of the double-amputation cases. This industry is at, present being carried on in the old kitchen premises, Margaret-street, but before long, we hope, will be installed in new and up-to-date premises in Redfern. The issue of motor bicycles and side-cars has been greatly appreciated by the permanently incapacitated men to whom they have been given. Up to the present 83 machines have been allotted."

    They hoped to have their own particular colors in pottery. They hoped to make fire proof crockery, which had been asked about.

    Cinderella's Post - Bag Mosman. Dear Cinderella One day last week I had a, very interesting visit to the works of the Disabled Soldiers' Pottery. There are 23 men working there, who are either minus one leg or two legs. But they all seemed happy, joking and laughing amongst themselves. They each have a chair on wheels, so as they can move from one table to another. They have teachers to teach them,, and then there is the manager, who has to do all the selling; hut otherwise no other men are employed. The manager showed me the men modelling the pottery and getting it. ready to he baked; but I was a bit late to see it put in the oven. It had been put in that morning, and would stay there until the next afternoon. They have four big brick ovens to bake it in ; and at the back they have coal fires about 2ft from the ground, which run right under the ovens. They make some beautiful pottery, including vases of all shapes. floating bowls, rose bowls, hair-tidies, teapots, jugs, and other things too numerous to mention. They are all in lovely col- ours — black, navy blue, sage blue, green, light and dark brown, and then some are green and brown mixed, or else green and blue mixed, or all different colours together. It was all so beautiful. I thoroiighly enjoyed myself, and would like to go again. Well, dear Cinderella, I will close now with best wishes to yourself and all C.P.-ites. I remain, yours trustfully, "GEISHA" (O.I.). (Dear "Geisha," — I very much admire the hand-made pottery of the disabled soldiers. I have a bowl and some vases, and one of these days I think I will buy one of their tall blue candle sticks; they are such a quaint shape.

    MASQUERADE BALL
    A good deal of interest is being displayed in the masquerade ball which is being arranged by Sydney artists, and is to be held on 19he instant in aid of the disabled soldiers engaged in the pottery industry under the aegis of the Red Cross. Miss Gladys Owen, who has always been so closely identified with Red Cross work, is one of the hon, secretaries, in conjunction with Mr. Gayfield Shaw, and has entered the scheme not as a member of that body, but as the representative of the women painters of Sydney. The artists and their helpers promise something unique, one of the features being the turning of the basement of the Town Ilall into a modern Bohemia. Mrs. R. W. Laidley is a member of the executive, as well as being the organiser of sets; and Miss J. Ranken, who is also on the executive and the catering committee, is the hon. director of the Red Cross Handicrafts (including the pottery section), where she has been a consistent worker for years. Miss Theo Cowan is helping with the Bohemian side, and is working hard to arrange a sculpturing section. Mrs. Cecil Hordern,
    who has for a long time been identified with the work at Graythwaite Convalescent Home , is hon. treasurer with Mr. Ernest Watt. With so much talent., including Mr. C. Westmacott, Miss Minnie Hooper, Mr. Albert Collins, Mr. Henry Fullwood, and a general combination of the various art societies, the ball promises to be one of the most brilliant ever held in Sydney.

    Dominoes for the
    Masquerade Ball
    THE masquerade ball on August 9, which the artists of Sydney are organising in the interests of the maimed soldiers who are working in the Red ross pottery industry, is being much talked of just now, and the question of suitable dominoes and the simplest, way to get them is exercising both
    feminine and masculine minds. Miss Gladys Owen
    has enlisted the services of a band of society folk
    who will sew for the occasion, and from 'whom dominoes may be ordered.
    The work will be done at the Red Cross work
    rooms, Farrell - avenue, Darlinghurst (at the back
    of Rose Hall), the telephone number being- William 627. The prices of the dominoes vary according to material and style.
    A plain domino of sateen, of any colour, will be 12s;
    if material be provided, the cost of making will be 5s.
    Those of better quality materials will cost 17s 6d,
    while hand-painted and stencilled garments can be
    turned out at from the latter price up to £2 2s. His
    Excellency the Governor and Dame Margaret Davidson have already given orders for dominoes. It is likely that the venture will receive excellent support, and the sum netted will materially assist, the cause.
    Loose collars and cuffs oi or sandi or spotted muslin, with lace friils, will be appreciated for laundered frocks as well as for a fresh appearance. Dresses are said to be fuller below the waist and lesiger; short sleeves or none at all. The uneven hem is to be still in favour.

    NOV 1922 : Women's and
    Men's Handiwork
    Men and women are
    equally skilled, so far
    as handicrafts are con-
    cerned. When men sew they are experts with their
    needless, as any display of work will show.
    WHEN the idea was first mooted of teaching the
    soldiers in Red Cross hospitals and convalescent
    homes to sew. surprise and wonder were ex-
    pressed' that anylhing so feminine should attract their
    attention. 'Fancy men sewing!' was the general com=
    ment. But the fact was quite overlooked that the cleverest
    of all sewers are the tailors, and that men use their
    needles to great, advan-
    tage in bookbinding, sail
    making, and other depart-
    ments. Thus it happens
    that whenever there is a
    show of work (as there is
    now) done by returned
    men, Ihere is always a
    good representation of
    quite fine stitchery. The
    annual exhibition of the
    Red Cross handicraft,
    opened last week by Dame
    Margaret Davidson at the
    depot in Wynyard-street,
    is most attractive, and it is
    hoped that it will receive
    the support it deserves. For
    there are ideal arlicles dis-
    played there which would
    be eminently suitable for
    Christmas gifts, and the
    pottery made by the limb-
    less soldiers is on view for
    the first lime. This is very
    beautiful. There are also ex-
    amples of beadwork, raffia
    of all kinds, toys, macrame
    work, and wood - carving.
    The proceeds of these sales enable the soldiers to make an honourable living, and the exhibition is meritorious in every way. Miss .J. Ranken is the hon, director of the handicrafts section of the Red Cross, and she is ably assisted by a band of voluntary helpers.

    TO HELP OUR DISABLED SOLDIERS THE ARTISTS' MASQUERADE BALL none Help It was indisput- ably the most spectacular dance that has taken place at Sydney. May- be, if held annu- ally, it will grow as world-famed as the Arts Ball in London, for in many particu- lars it proved a formidable rival to that popular and well-known event. It seemed, as if everyone in Sydney was pre- sent. More than twoo thousand tickets were sold, and every available part of the accommoda- tion was taken up. none Help Last week we published a fine full page photograph of the artists' ball, which was held at the Sydney Town Hall with the object of helping the disabled soldiers who, under the aegis of the Red Cross Society, are engaged in ihe pottery industry. That picture gave a capital idea of the animated and spectacular scene, which in point of brilliancy had pro - none Help bably never been surpassed in Syd ney. Here we reproduce some of the striking costumes worn on the occa- sion. Many of our readers will, doubtless , welcome them, not only because of their association with one of ihe most successful balls ever organised in this city, but because they will be useful in furnishing hints for future fancy - dress carnivals. none Help The basement was the great attraction of the evening. It was decorated with hessian and plastered with picture film advertisements. The side-shows, which gathered in a rich harvest, were arranged all around in small cubicles, and the spirit of Bo- hemia, which artists are cre- dited with enjoying, permea- ated the atmosphere. There were fortune-tellers, dancing of a sort, a mont de piete, sculptors, crystal gazers, car- toonists, a 'movie' studio, and other attractions. none Help none Help none Help none Help none Help It would be impossible to detail the costumes.

    FEMINISTS' GALA FETE OPENED
    "In the name of falrplay and honesty, women should receive - the same opportunities as men— that is, equal pay for equal work," said Lady Gordon, who played a new role as a feminist when she opened the United Association's Christmas Fair in the basement of the State Theatre yesterday afternoon. .......
    Native bears asleep on our brown tree trunks and kookaburras galore have been cleverly fashioned into ash trays and ornaments. Mrs. Seccombe, who is a member of the Arts and
    Crafts Society, is one of the few Australian potters who glazes and colors her own pottery.
    The work never passes out of her hands from the time it is moulded— "hot from the oven"— until it receives its final gloss of color.
    By Request
    On the same stall the work of Mr. A. G. Capper, who has recently
    introduced a novelty in reproducing photographs on a porcelain surface, was also prominent. By request, he will photograph your favorite scene or person on to an ash tray or any porcelain-ware.

    A FIVE MINUTES' HOMILY. 'Then the word of the Lord came unto me saying O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter, saith the Lord. 'Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.' It is interesting to note that the potter has been in | evidence from a remote period of antiquity. The Bible references to the potter, such as the one just quoted were made many centuries after he had flourished in various countries, whose civilisations are recorded for us in the pages of history. We know, for instance some details of his productions in connection with the earlier civilisations of the Egyptians, and that means many centuries before the Christian era. Empires which have long been only misty memories, produced a race of potters some of whose productions we are able to study in this 20th century. The message which came to Jeremiah, and which he was instructed to convey to the 'house of Israel,' was received in the 'potter's house,' or workshop, as he stood look- ing at the potter, working on the 'wheel.' As Longfellow puts it: — 'Like a magician he appeared, A conjuror without book or beard; And while he plied his magic art - For it was magical to me — I stood in silence and apart, And wondered more and more to see That shapeless, lifeless mass of clay Rise up to meet the master's hand, And now contract and now expand, And even his slightest touch obey.' Some of our inspirations, some of the messages that mean much to us, may thus come from the material things we handle in our daily employment. One of the things of primary importance to the potter is in the proper selection of his clay. Upon this depends its successful manipulation through all the stages or pro- cesses necessary for the production of vessels, either of utility or ornament. If he should attempt to use a refractory clay, the results would be, much tribula- tion in the working of it; while if he succeeded in giving shape to his vessel, it would still cause hi

The introduction of Queensland and Victorian exhibitors has roused a great deal of interest, and visitors are much struck with the marked diversity of the work. The leather work seems to have improved in excellence of color, design and workman ship. The pottery and painted China have commanded remarkable sales, as also have unique and quaint calendars. The work of the wounded soldiers under the hospital handicrafts has a corner to itself, and the exhibits are of consider able merit. The Red Cross Soldiers' Toy Industry is a large and interesting exhibit. On Friday all the jointed wooden animals had their tails well elevated, with the British lion in the advance guard, over the cheering war news. The exhibition is open on Saturday afternoons.

    "Tzane," by Miss J. L. Ranken, Is a wel- come addition to the library of Australian fic- tion. The title Is the name of a substance of Immense economic importance, which is produced only In Australia and South Ame- rica. Ono Salter, a young Scottish Austra- lian, controls the Australian Interests, and the story describes the attempts of as pretty a gang of scoundrels as one would find outside prison walis to get possession of them. Poor Salter has a remarkably unpleasant time be- fore their knavish tricks aro finally frustrated. Ho is entrapped, thrown into n dungeon in an ancient keep, and subjected to Ingenious tortureB to make him yield. The coil is complicated by the cowardice of a scientist, a poltroon who betrays his IIIHOB to save his own skin. However, our sorely tried hero (who, at one time, by his own admis- sion, cuts rather an unheroic figure) wins through in the end, thanks to the efforts of a charming Scottish girl and a middle-aged lawyer, a sterling person, who is equal to any emergency. The action Is brisk; Inci- dent follows Incident In breathless succes- sion, and the Interest Is maintained through- Fix this textout. (Thomas Nelson and Sons.)

    A book of verses called 'Dream Horses' (after the first item), has just been published by Miss J. S. Ranken, of Melbourne' (Australian Authors' Agency), and is finding many admirers in Sydney. Many things have been written in praise of the wattle, but nothing -prettier than the verses that begin There's a flash of yellow among the trees, And a glitter of golden ihair / And a gay 'little smile on the dancing leaves, For my lady wattle is there. Her gowns are of velvety yellow and gold, And silver and green are her shoes, She carries a scent that will waken the heart0 - ' . ' To music that no one should lose. A very clever thought lis contained in the; lines The gods on their .thrones are laugh I iner» ? At man, *poor man, and his strife, That all should have equal chances, For the long hard race of life. But tears have broken the laughter As the gods held the prize on their laps; — For how may 'the living start fairly, Fix this text.When the dead give the handicaps?

    DREAM HORSES. "Dream Horses" is a pleasant booklet of verse by J. L. Ranken, in which the author sings in melodious and graceful strains of various things. Without being very pro- found, these verses possess a good deal of charm, and occasionally, as in "The First Night in Sydney Harbour" and "The Dancer," a deeper note is struck. It is from the latter we quote: By Tuscan vines I've danced the dance of childhood, And wakened youth in old age tottering by. By funeral pyres I've had the solemn measure For the still dead and those about to die. When warriors' spears to death made salutation, 'Twas mine to dance, and stir their blood like wine, And see their mighty limbs, at ease and slothful, Made furious by the rhythmic swing of mine. In many lands; through all the long past ages, Now feasted and now scorned; the jewel, the jest Were mine while youth and buoyant step was by me. Youth passed, and with him hurried all the rest. But mine, 'tis ever mine to lead men blinded, To sway them as Salome did of old; The dance of death, of joy of love, of passion. These will be mine until the earth grows cold. (The Australasian Authors' Agency.)

    RED CROSS MARKET. DISABLED SOLDIERS' WORK. SUCCESSFUL EFFORT. Under Ideal conditions, and in surround- ings that provided an effective setting, a Red Cross market was held at Rose Hall, Darlinghurst, yesterday. It was such a suc- cess that the organisers decided to make it an annual event. The market, which was organised at the suggestion of Mrs. James Ashton, was held to give disabled ex-soldiers engaged in the various Red Cross industries an opportunity of disposing of their wares. The effort was rewarded with gratifying success. The quality of the work and the moderate prices attrac- ted buyers readily, and the takings amounted to £320. Over 2000 persons visited the fair. The largest crowd was found around the handicrafts stall, where all sorts of beau- tiful goods were offered for sale. Seekers of Christmas gifts found a treasure store at this stand, and also at the pottery stalls. The Red Cross pottery shows a wonder- ful improvement and takes Its name, "Jeno- lan," from its colouring, which Is said to resemble that under the arch of the famous cave. The chief stall had a varied collec- tion of jugs, teapots, bowls, and vases of different shapes. Mr. Fredericks and seve- ral of his "mates," all double amputation cases, sold a second lot of pottery from a small stand under the trees. The toy stall, with its rocking horses, bears, and other animals, sold out wlthin an hour, and had to be replenished from the factory. It was the rendezvous of all the young people In the gathering, who "tried out" the varlous mobile samples of the sol- diers' craft. The basket industry had a large collec- tion of useful articles on its 'Stall, from large soiled llnen-holdors to tiny baskets for shopping. Trays and perambulators were also on vlew. Orders were also received for large cane chairs, which the men make very artistically. The Blinded Soldiers' Tea Stall, at which Miss. Rainford assisted, also did a brisk trade. The Junior Red Cross Bold a varied assortment of goods at Its

As a curative shop, the work of the Industry, the report states, cannot be over-estimated. During tho past 12 months the toy industry has employed ou nn average 40 disabled men.; about 76 per cent, of this number are totally incapacitated, and at present are unable to enter any outside employment, and owing to their disability are unfit for vocational training under the repat- riation scheme.

    FOR MAIMED SOLDIERS. The Limbless and Maimed Soldiers' Associa- tion is having a concert at the Sydney Town Hall to-night to raise funds for the establish ment of suitable businesses for maimed sol- diers unable to follow the ordinary occupations of life. Mr. Walter Bentley is hon. organiser for the entertainment, in conjunction with Dr. Stopford and Mrs. Mackinnon. The concert will be under the patronage of the Governor- General and Lady Forster and the State Gover- nor and Dame Margaret Davidson. It Is reported that about 1000 men returned to this State limbless or maimed, or having lost one eye, and about 30 now remain unem= ployed; but the number fluctuates. The Red Cross has given great help by establishing the double-amputation men in the pottery business, and many of these are accommo- dated at Rose Hall, where there is special provision for the wheeled chairs and motor cycles used by them. Tho object of the concert Is to establish a hostel for the men who have not yet re-en- tered suitable employment, and to endeavor to establish them in some business which will Fix this textmake them self-supporting.

    MAIMED SOLDIERS. HOSTEL TO BE PROVIDED. . An effort is being made to provide a hostel for maimed and limbless soldiers. The atten- tion of various organisations has been directed to the number of these men to be seen In the city streets seeking alms, and it, is thought that if a hostel were provided most of the men who are unmarried or unattached might make that their headquarters, and that from there efforts could be made to establish them in some business which would make them self- supporting. The Red Cross has taken the initiative in establishing in the pottery busi- ness a number of men who have suffered double amputation, and many are accommo- dated at Rose Hall, where there is provision for the wheel chairs and specially constructed motor cycles used by them. It Is now felt that something more Is re- quired so that assistance may bo rendered to all maimed men who may require it. There were about 1000 men returned to New South Wales limbless or maimed. About 800 have joined the Limbless and Maimed Soldiers' As- sociation and, largely through the efforts of this body all save about 30 have secured em- ployment.

Dent, Earle and Co., who jepr-i-. sent the State 's ' Crematoiium in Sydney. These urns are handsome curved jars solidly constructed, heavy in weight, and simple in design. Within, the "sacred ashes," in a separate container, are hermetically sealed away for ever. That ghoulish verse beloved of the nursery, the last couplet of which runs:— Afterwards the room glfew chilly No oue liked to poke poor Milly! has 110 application here, for the sealing at the lower end of the mouth of the urn is inviolate.

    Every charity in Sydney seems to
    be announcing either a benefit ball or a
    theatrical performance. The Red Cross
    Pottery Works for disabled soldiers
    now comes forward with the intima
    tion of a masquerade dance at the
    Town Hall in August. Miss Gladys
    Owen, who was one of the most effi
    cient and keenest members of the Red
    Cross Executive during the war, is or
    ganising the event, aided and abetted
    by Mr Gayfield Shaw. Mr Shaw is a
    veritable tower of strength, as he will
    have with him all the artists in Syd
    ney. His salon has turned into the
    pockets of Australian painters many
    thousands of pounds during the last
    few years, and he virtually founded
    the successful Australian Painter-
    Etchers' Society. Last year this
    society sold just under £3000 worth of
    pictures in the different Australian
    States, and this year's local show at
    the Education Department's gallery
    has run into over £500.
