Cement garden ornaments from Nelly Beasley's Byng Street garden.

Nelly's garden ornaments are treasured by her daughters Kate Henman and Myra Howell as a memory of their mother and her garden. Some of the ornaments show the wear and tear of occasional vandalism and others have been repainted. Ornaments like this are now highly collectable, although some people draw the line at Aboriginal statues. The conch shells lined the edge of the garden beds.
