JCW Scene Book 2

Between 2014–2016, THA undertook a program of digitization of Scene Books from the JC Williamson collection held by Scenic Studios, Preston. The collection comprises thousands of images of JCW sets, backdrops, scenic details, lighting rigs etc. stretching back to the end of the nineteenth century.

Scene Book No. 2

St. James' Theatre Album, London - 1890s (No. 1). Dimensions: 40 x 28 (landscape). These are records of George Alexander productions for St. James' Theatre, King Street, London (built 1835, demolished 1957). The theatre's most brilliant period came under Alexander's management - 1891 to 1918. The photographs would have been used as guides or as inspiration for the scenic artists working on the same productions in Australia.
