The Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum, Faulconbridge. 6th March 2015

WARNING:   The following contains NUDITY.

I think the gardens here may have been more substantial in earlier times, but at present all the effort (the property is run by volunteers) is put into restoring the buildings.

Photos marked NMP have been, or contain material downloaded from the web, as photos are not allowed to be taken inside the buildings.

Pelargonium and nude.

"Springwood",  Norman Lindsay's home, was built in the mid 1890's
for the Sydney department store owner Francis Foy. 
 (Francis Foy first named the estate "Maryville" )
