Going Out In Style, The Hidden Meanings of Headstones (VIA ZOOM) 1:00pm-2:00pm
The shape, style and material of a headstone are all pointers to different periods in history. These trends tell us about patterns of consumerism, values, tastes and fashion. In this illustrated talk, Dr Lisa Murray will introduce you to the styles you can see in 19th century Australian cemetery memorials and the craftsmen who made them. Dr Murray is the City of Sydney Historian and the author of Sydney Cemeteries: A Field Guide. She is the 2021 Hertzberg Fellow at the State Library of NSW.
Client contribution cost: FREE
