On Saturday, 2nd September Helen McCaffrey, Mayor of City of Canada Bay, unveiled our recently renovated 1890 Higginbotham & Robinson Map of Concord. This had been renovated and framed by our Museum Advisor and great friend, Karen Coote, thanks to the $2,000 we had received throught the City of Canada Bay Community Grants.
Among our many guests – at least 80 – were local State and Federal Members, former Mayors, Aldermen and staff of Concord Council as well as several former society members who were around when we started our original museum in 1972.
Our Local Studies Librarian, David Sansome, shared his vast knowledge of the area by entertaining us with slides and a talk about Concord at the turn of the century.
This map is now a valuable and significant addition to our collection and is proudly on display for all to see. Please drop in if you are passing.
