Caroline Simpson Collection
The collection has been dispersed among the HHT’s properties. Some important items of colonial furniture have been placed at Elizabeth Bay House and at Vaucluse House. A collection of David Moore photographs has gone to the Museum of Sydney, along with two Sydney Cove medallions made by Josiah Wedgwood in 1789 to commemorate European settlement at Sydney Cove. Other items now form part of the collections of Government House and Hyde Park Barracks Museum.
Many of the pictures, including a collection of Conrad Martens’ watercolours and drawings, are part of the library collection and can be found through searching the HHT’s Pictures Catalogue.
