Judith McKay photograph albums

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. Photographs by Jacqueline Macnaughtan and Tim Collis-Bird.
From volume 1: "These albums were compiled for preservation with the sculptor's papers as a record of the studio and, in particular, to document sculpture and models which were not retrieved from the studio".
