[Children’s Aquarium-Themed Playroom]

1933. Two vintage silver gelatin photographs, each signed in pencil on backing below image, 21.4 x 19.3cm to 18.9 x 29cm. Retouching to surface loss, slight silvering and creases, laid down on original backing.

These images were illustrated in a 1933 volume of The Home magazine, captioned “Submarine playroom. These two photographs, taken at the home of Mr and Mrs Rodney Dangar, Arlington, Edgecliff, Sydney, show the unusual wall decorations of the children’s playroom, the work of Mr S. Woodward Smith. In the blue and green waves, gaily coloured tropical fish wend their sinuous way through the coral and seaweed, while lobsters, anemones, shells and crabs mingle on the sandy sea bed…The room, which is over 20 feet long, has a floor of polished jarrah and opens on to a verandah where a sign board directs ‘To the aquarium.’” Ref: SLM.
