Christmas in the John Oxley Library
With Christmas just around the corner we thought it would be timely to highlight some of the wonderful Christmas related material held in the John Oxley Library. This material includes photographs, Christmas cards, ephemera and posters depicting the celebration of Christmas in Queensland through the years.
One particularly lovely collection of Christmas cards is to be found in the James Wieneke Papers. A prominent artist himself, and Director of the Queensland Art Gallery from 1967 - 1974, Wieneke's collection includes cards, many of them specially created, from a wide variety of artistic friends. Names of senders include Cyril Gibbs, Rubery Bennett, Sali Herman, William Dargie, John Santry, and Kenneth MacQueen.
From all of us here at the John Oxley Library we would like to wish our researchers and colleagues a happy and safe Christmas Season.
