Queensland to a T Collection and Exhibition, State Library of Queensland, Peter Spearritt
Prodigious Australiana contributor Glenn R. Cooke is well known through his professional interests in Queensland art, decorative arts and social history. But that does not define Glenn; he loves ballroom dancing and gardens, as well as pursuing a sideline in collecting artefacts relating to his home state. This includes 1540 souvenir textiles which have been acquired by the State Library of Queensland. Its current exhibition presents 214 printed tea towels to show how the Sunshine State has been presented in popular imagery over the last 70 years.
