Post Office Donation

The Museum has just received a donation of items from the early post office including desk, weigh scale, brass letter slot and brass general delivery sign. The items were donated by Tim Bonish
through his father Peter Bonish. Prior to that they came from R.J. Gibson, grandfather on Tim's mother's side. Originally the items were used by Eustace E. Wallis postmaster from 1918 -1936.
We are fortunate to have such precious artifacts from our business community saved and passed down.
We are presently arranging the most appropriate way to display these and other post office items, that we have received over the years.
