photos and stories from the Powerhouse Museum
This photograph, from the David Mist archive, shows television production assistant, Jan Lawler c. 1969. Jan Lawler was working in Europe for Paramount Pictures at the time David Mist photographed her for his 1969 publication, Made in Australia, a celebration of Australian women achievers and ‘trendsetters’.
