AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Poems are a response to the donation in 1978 to the State Library of NSW of the Clifton Cappie Towle collection. This collection includes more than a thousand photographs showing Aboriginal weapons and implements, rock art, ceremonial sites, shell middens and stone arrangements from all parts of NSW, all photographed between about 1920 and 1940. The State Library of NSW is presenting an exhibition of these works, containing some of the most beautiful, haunting images of carved trees collected by Clifton Cappie Towle before his death in 1946.'
