JCW Scene Book 10

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.

St. James' Theatre Album, London - 1890s (No. 2) Dimensions: 40 x 28 (landscape) The photos would have been used as guides or as inspiration for the Australian scenic artists working on the same productions. These images are of George Alexander productions for St. James' Theatre, King Street, London (built 1835, demolished 1957). The theatre's most brilliant period came under this management - 1891 to 1918 - with the production of very significant plays by Oscar Wilde, Arthur Wing Pinero, Henry James, Henry Arthur Jones and William Shakespeare.
