Product Description

“I named this print because so many people asked me how I know so much about Darlington Point. Little do they know that I was reared up on this mission back in the late 1930s and late 1940s. Warangesda mission was closed down in 1925. My mother, was born on Warangesda Mission. The mission on the other side of the river is where I was brought up, called Police Paddock mission. Both these missions are at Darlington Point.’

How Soon They Forget is the title of the book about Roy Kennedy’s art written by Philippa Scarlett.
