I Remember When…. Growing up in Willoughby
'I Remember When... GROWING UP IN WILLOUGHBY in the 1930s-1960s'
As told by local residents.. the houses they lived in.. the lives they led.. and the builders who built their houses.. With photos, memorabilia and a 1940s gown presented by The Cavalcade of History & Fashion.
Willoughby District Historical Society’s Museum holds an intriguing display of local history of interest to students, residents, local history buffs and historians of all ages.
There are displays of the Tanneries and Mashman Pottery plus tools used by coach builders, woodworkers and engineers, providing a tangible link to many lost skills. The kitchen and laundry give a picture of home life early in the 20th century.
Our new exhibition I Remember When… gives a refreshing look at Willoughby’s past.
We invite you to see how today’s interest in our homes, work and entertainment vary with those of the generations of our parents and grandparents, shown by a colourful and informative display.
Volunteer guides are able to give visitors a conducted tour to promote better understanding and appreciation of this community’s rich heritage.
