Prominent antique dealer Barry Becarevic has gifted items from his personal connection to a UOW exhibition.

The Panizzi Gallery of the UOW Library is playing host to ‘Recollections of Exploration and Voyage’ until the end of June.

UOW Library Archives Manager Grant White said the exhibition reflects the high value of travel around the turn of the century.

“They almost always brought something new back with them so it’s hardly surprising that written accounts by these explorers were keenly awaited by a fascinated public,” Mr. White said.
