This window, illustrated with Captain James Cook’s ship HMB Endeavour, is in the hall of a private house, and was made in the early 1920s.
Above a scroll bearing the name “Endeavour” is a depiction of the vessel at sea. Below the scroll is a medallion of the head of Captain Cook. To the left of the medallion is a figure guarding a globe showing Australia, and on the right is a figure with a large compass.
The house, named ‘Miegunyah’, in the suburb of Toorack, Melbourne, once belonged to Sir Russell Grimwade (1879-1955).
The window was the work of Darryl Lindsay, one of the artist brothers, who was a friend of Sir Russell Grimwade.
I was Sir Russell who purchased the Cook family cottage at Great Ayton, England, as a gift to the Australian people. The cottage was subsequently removed to Melbourne and rebuilt in the Fitzroy Gardens to commemorate the centenary of the State of Victoria in 1934.
