Waratah Design for Wall Paper
Mr C Toms, Museum Artist and Lecturer.
".. we have a conception introducing the flower-heads and leaves of the New South Wales, Victorian, and Tasmanian Waratahs.
"Wall-paper is a comodity which enters very largely now into the life of a civilised community, and, like most domestic articles, has its fashions, ideas, forms, designs, colouring, &c., all changing with kaleidoscopic variations of passing years."
From: R.T.Baker (1915) 'The Australian Flora in Applied Art, Part 1, The Waratah', Sydney.
