Daphne Mayo Sydney Studio, volume 1

Daphne Mayo's Sydney Studio at 231 George Street was reclaimed by the Sydney Cove Development Authority in 1981. Queensland Trustees Limited, who had power of attorney for Mayo, engaged Judith McKay to direct the sorting and dispersal of the Sydney Studio from 29 June to 8 July 1981. Mayo had been a tenant of the building since 1940 and retained this studio after her move back to Brisbane. She was the last tenant to leave the building. This album is volume one of a two volume set of photograph albums complied by Judith McKay detailing the contents of the studio and the packing of contents. Photographs by Jacqueline Macnaughtan and Tim Collis-Bird.
