Charles Angles

'Charlie's Angles' showcases the varied building styles within the St George region designed by local architect and nursery owner Charles Halstead between 1889 and 1915. Through historic photographs, the exhibition highlights aspects of the work of Halstead in south-western Sydney.

With a passion for both buildings and roses, Charles Herbert Halstead (1865–1941) was an architect who designed numerous buildings throughout the St George region in the early 20th century. After relocating to Bowral in 1900 he practiced there until 1907 before returning to Sydney and being elected Mayor of Kogarah in 1908. Through this exhibition of photographs, drawn from Local Studies collections at the Georges River Council Libraries, stories of our built heritage are highlighted, and the contribution of a local architect to the community celebrated.
