August 2019


Our display is titled ''Then and Now - How things have changed'',

featuring such varied items as Victorian bloomers and a robot vacuum cleaner.

Come and see a prescription from ancient Babylon, a recipe for home made cough syrup

which includes opium as one of the ingredients together with a range of interesting items.

John Morthen  is lending us some items relating to the Cowra Breakout.

The anniversary of the Breakout is next Monday, so we will be installing this in the servants' quarters on Monday.

We expect it will remain for several weeks.
