COLLECTION

To deprecated in version 2 and merged with Theme

Collections are clusters of objects given to the Museum by a specific donor as a group. They often represent the work of a particular person or company such as the Hedda Morrison Photographic Collection or The Tooths & Co Brewery Collection. Other collections are the result of the personal collecting of a donor, such as the Cavill Silverware Collection, a donation from Professor Kenneth Cavill of his collection of early 20th century Australian Silverware.
