HAWKESBURY REGIONAL MUSEUM, Baker Street, Windsor
What do a doll called Ruth, a miner’s couch and a 222 year old document have in common? They are all part of the new exhibition opening in January at Hawkesbury Regional Museum in Windsor. The exhibition pays tribute to Hawkesbury Historical Society, which has been collecting objects significant to the history of the Hawkesbury since 1956. For this exhibition, selected members of the Society have nominated those objects that they, as individuals, find the most interesting and significant.
Images: long-standing member, Carol Carruthers, has nominated some hand-made lace and an exquisite beaded dress from the 1920s. Left: Hand made lace and right beaded black dress in a box, from the 1920s
