Painting in the Mitchell Library that is suggested as St Jude's Randwick. It isn't. It is more likely St Andrew's Presbyterian Church Parramatta, which was demolished and reassembled at Wentworthville.

The watercolour painting in the Mitchell Library is catalogued as:

“TITLE: Unidentified church, possibly St Jude’s, Randwick



DATE: No date

TYPE OF MATERIAL: Graphic Materials, Drawings


PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 1 watercolour – 11 5/8 x 18 3/4 in.

DESCRIPTION SOURCE: Information transferred from pictures card catalogue as part of the eRecords Project, 2009-2010


NAME: Anglican Church of St. Jude’s (Randwick, N.S.W.)

TOPIC: churches”

However, a note found inside the wrappings from Joan Kerr (undated) asserted it was St Andrews Presbyterian, Parramatta.

Below is a link to the latter.

The link above tells us that St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Parramatta was demolished and reassembled in Wentworthville.  The photo of the existing Wentworthville Presbyterian Church in this link looks strikingly like the painting in the Mitchell.
