EVT Carrington Albums In Newcastle
The Carrington Albums were a series of 22 bound volumes of illuminated addresses, containing finely detailed illuminated borders, hand painted illustrations and well-wishing messages from residents, towns and associations across the State in honour of Lord Carrington, who served as Governor from 1885 to 1890.

Three of the Carrington Albums containing examples of exquisitely beautiful illuminated addresses produced across Newcastle, Maitland and the wider Hunter Region in the 1880s visited the Newcastle regional repositories of NSW State Records at the University of Newcastle's Auchmuty Library on the 3rd June 2015 and Newcastle Regional Public Library on the 4th June 2015.
