Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Mayor Lachlan Clyne opened the new exhibition at the Unley Museum last week.
Volunteers, Friends, Councillors, Curators, Mayors and members of the museum and history community attended. The afternoon included speeches from Mayor Clyne, Anne Milne (Friends of the Unley Museum President), and Elizabeth Hartnell (current Curator).

The new exhibition is the Silver Selection from Our Collection.

Come stop by the Museum at 80 Edmund Avenue in Unley for your own viewing of the Silver Selection. It is a collection of exhibits found by people invited by the Musuem to peruse their archives for items that mean something to them.

Amongst the many exhibits you can view a picture of England v South Australia at (yes) Unley Oval way back; a doctors ear syringe, a cash register, a morse code machine (the start of technology as we know it today). An original bed pan, complete with instructions for use for maximum comfort of the patient clearly is a classic.

For those who may interested I was one of the invitees and I chose a pew sheet from St Augustine’s Anglican Church from Anzac Day of 1933. As a Warden at St Augustine’s and Anzac Day being very special to me I was delighted to include it in the exhibition.

I am not going to tell you what else is there. You have to see it for yourself.

For those who have (as the add a few years ago said) “been there too1” you will love the stroll down memory lane to an Unley that used to be.
