Right On Powerhouse Museum 

I love it when material culture objects and collections are categorized in a sensible way. The Powerhouse Museum in Sydney Australia has a super lace collection and it is made even more delicious by its juxtaposition to HUGE GOLIATH steam engines and other industrial sorts of exhibits.

Rosemary Shepherd did all of us a favor by putting lace into a practical scheme of organization and classification. See the pdf of her conclusions which not only has well-written text but graphics that make the text memorable. This is a "save and use" document.
