    Coffee Customs is the stunning debut exhibition to coincide with the opening of the newly refurbished Customs House in Circular Quay.

    Featuring over 80 fascinating photographs and original objects relating to Sydneys early coffee palaces of the 1880s through to the migrant-influenced bohemian café culture of the 1950s and 60s, Coffee Customs explores the social history of one of Sydneys most significant imported commodities coffee.

    Coffee Customs features a selection of objects from both public collections and private collections that have never before been on public display. Highlights include memorabilia and photographs from Repins, a famous 1950s café that resided on Pitt Street; archival coffee advertisements produced in the 1940s-1960s; and the beautiful and atmospheric photographs of Max Dupain and Brian Bird. Birds images of the Lincoln Coffee Lounge and Café in Rowe St depict what was an important Bohemian meeting place for Sydneys artists and post-war modernist thinkers as well as the birthplace of the Sydney Push.

    The exhibition draws upon the historical significance of the Customs House building, which until 1990 served as the headquarters of the Australian Customs Service and played an active role as the primary trade gateway for goods such as coffee and people flowing into Sydney and Australia.

    Coffee Customs will celebrate the history of Sydneys coffee culture and offer a unique insight into a commodity that has become an essential part of our daily lives.

    Exhibition located: Level 1, Library & Exhibition Lounge
