Summerhayes Architecture Collection

About This Collection

The Summerhayes Collection represents the work of three generations of the Summerhayes family - Edwin (1868-1944), Reginald (1897-1965) and Geoffrey (1928-2010) - whose combined practice of architecture in Western Australia extended through the 20th century. Curtin University Library holds approximately 500 drawings and more than 1,500 photographs relating to the design work of the Summerhayes architects. We are adding a selection of these to Collections WA, with records for all items available on the Curtin Library catalogue.
