Home Sweet Home to explore homes in Georges River region

13/11/2018

Hurstville Museum & Gallery will soon welcome the Home Sweet Home exhibition, which will feature photographs of local homes, their owners and interiors of the Georges River region from the late 19th century onwards. 

The captivating images were taken at a time when the Georges River area was developing and estates were being subdivided into smaller lots, and capture domestic and private life frozen in a moment of time.

Homes varied from large sprawling villas or mansions with extensive grounds and gardens, to smaller cottages and bungalows. 

They depict the architectural variety and diversity of people’s lives during this time from the late Victorian era to the 1920s. 

A number of grand homes such as Norwood, Glendower, Gannon Grove, Deuaran, Villa Maria, Kenilworth and Fernland feature in this exhibition. 

The Snapshot Gallery forms part of Hurstville Museum & Gallery and showcases a curated selection of photographs from Georges River Council Local Studies collection. The Georges River Council’s Local Studies collection contains over 10,000 photographs.
