Last month we were privileged to have a visit from Gordon from the Redland Museum in to talk to us.
The Redland Museum houses a collection of over 14,000 items that were used in the bygone days for the current and future generations to admire. Much of the collection reflects the history of the local area showcasing treasures from our European ancestors, farming industry and marine activities.
Established over 40 years ago, the Museum is entirely the result of volunteer work and community support with the Rotary Club and Redland Shire Council being major contributors.
Gordon was kind enough to come armed with a number of artefacts from the collection for our residents to admire, including a metal iron, a kerosene lantern, an old telephone and a two ended glass baby bottle. Beryl, one of our lovely residents, who is a mother of 10 children, remembered using the baby bottle for her children.
The presentation brought about much chatter and reminiscing from our residents.
