Acquisitions by Queen Victoria Museum & Art gallery

• A four-fold blackwood screen, with four pictorial panels, was painted in 1889 by Launceston artist, Amelia Burrows. This significant work was able to be returned to
Launceston and be acquired by the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery through the generous support
of the Launceston Museum and Art Gallery Foundation.
A talented painter, Amelia Kenworthy was born in Launceston on 10 April 1860. She married
Alfred Edward Burrows on 28 October 1881 and died
in Launceston on 13 March 1927. Amelia was also very well known for her china painting which often featured
local landscapes and Tasmanian flora. This four-fold screen has another important connection to Launceston.
It was exhibited, along with three other screens by the artist, in the Tasmanian International Exhibition held in
the Albert Hall, Launceston in 1891–92. Amelia Burrows received a Highly Commended medal for this screen and for a fire screen, with a small folding screen receiving a Second Award.
The screen is a fine example of the artist’s work. Stylistically, the screen represents the culmination of late Victorian interest in the use of painted decoration in both building interiors & their furnishings. The inclusion of landscape scenes such as the Cataract in 1860,
Rosevears, Mount Barrow, and the Corra Lynn Bridge further strengthens the connections of this work to Launceston and its surrounding environment.

Osma Lanham was the first child born in Adamsfield, Tasmania, Australia on 24 February 1927
Osma was named for the mineral, Osmiridium being mined at the small township which was set, in the now heritage listed south western region of Tasmania.
In this photo Osma is seen with her older sister, Betty, father Tom (in shirt sleeves) & the local policeman. The hut in the photo was one of a few buildings as most of the miners lived in tents. This hut also doubled as the local Post Office managed by Osma's mother, Isabella Lanham nee Crawford. Osma lived here until she was six when the family returned to Launceston and school life.
Osma started school at the Wellington Square State Primary School, the family moved to lefroy where the children attended the local school before Osma gained a scholarship to Launceston High School. She excelled at school as well as in her sporting endeavours.

After, Osma left school she took up a position with Johnstone & Wilmot, grocery wholesalers, cnr Cimitiere St, & St John St. Launceston. The building which housed Johnstone & Wilmot was erected in 1842, and is considered architecturally unique and is one of the city's oldest buildings. Osma continued to work for the firm of Johnstone & Wilmot with breaks into other fields of life, for almost sixty years

On the 2nd April 1947, Osma married her soul mate, Claude Victor Kenworthy, only child of Victor & Eileen Kenworthy.

Mining was in the 'blood' of early pioneers with the Kenworthy family being connected to Waratah through Claude's cousin  Dudley Kenworthy, The Kenworthy Stamper Mill is now a tourist attraction for the Waratah area which holds a reunion day each year on January 26th for the relatives, friends and descendants of residents. The town with its magnificent waterfall - in the main street - was once the richest tin mine in the world.

Kenworthy's Stamper Mill This building houses working machinery used by a local, Dudley Kenworthy, who continued prospecting near Mount Bischoff mine after it closed in the 1940s. Visitors can view the Kenworthy Stamper Mill in operation as it has been restored to full working capacity.  
The story of Waratah:
On December 4, 1871, a prospector, James ‘Philosopher’ Smith, discovered tin at Mount Bischoff.  His discovery triggered a mining boom and the birth of Tasmanian mining.

When the mine closed, in 1935, it had produced 81,000 tonnes of tin and provided a dividend equal to £200 for every £1 initially invested.  At its peak the town, which now has only a few hundred residents, had a population in excess of 5,000.
Waratah remained isolated from the rest of Tasmania until 1963 when a connecting road was finally completed.

Claude & Osma Kenworthy were a well known part of the Mowbray community. They owned a grocery store/newsagency in Invermay Rd for many years. Cultural changes in the way local populations "shopped" with the advent of supermarkets caused the closure of the family grocery store business
