The Exhibition was made up a number of displays in a variety of different formats – on boards, under glass and on the screen. Learn more about the people, environment, history and heritage of Glebe and Forest Lodge.

The tremendous variety of material on display had many visitors coming back multiple times. Eight different displays illuminated not only the Glebe Society’s achievements but the history (including pre-settlement), environment and heritage of Glebe itself. Also on display was the winners of the school photo competition and the thought-provoking portraits by Glebe photographer Tom Psomotragos.

The AV presentation, produced by Allan Hogan, ran continuously on a loop in the ‘Viewing Lounge’. Elements of the AV presentation included: photographs from the Bernard Smith Collection; Glebe: Now & Then; Glebe Point Rd – 25 Years of Change; William Robinson’s 1873 Panorama of Sydney; Australian Biography Series: Tom Uren; and Australian Biography Series: Jack Mundey.

The exhibition space was peppered with cabinets, tables and easels, each with a collection on display.  Among these was the colourful handiwork of the Glebe Society’s community subcommittee, a fascinating selection of books, DVDs, audio CDs, publications and articles on various aspects of Glebe and Forest Lodge and some very special historical documents kept under glass for safe-keeping.
