Brisbane History Expo - Thursday 19 Nov 2015
On Thursday 19 Nov 2015 we mounted a display at City Hall with a number of other Brisbane Heritage museums. Pic on the left shows the display. While not a huge number of visitors there was considerable interest shown in our Museum with a number of people suggesting that they would visit Chermside.
The display panels used are the printers proof panels from the First Ashore Display, just the right size for this sort of activity.
[right] Setting up in the morning, you can just make out Peter Newland,
Frank Meoni, Brad Shillig
and just a small part of Phill Hill's hand.
