William Nicholls Anderson (1873-1927) was an Australian painter, one of whose works from the 1906 series River + Rail is in the Kew Historical Society’s art collection (donated 1984). The archive file contains correspondence, biographical information (written by his niece), and locations in Kew where he lived. Much of the correspondence between the Society and the City of Kew relates to the painting and its location in the Mayor’s Room at the Kew Civic Offices in Charles Street, where it was on loan from the Society. Lucy M (Jean) Hornby, the artist’s niece was a resident of 5 and 20 Queen Street, Kew.
