Men's Memorabilia

In the interest of randomly delighting our members, we try to lay on a variety of quirky displays or exhibitions (despite the general lack of space or purpose built display area - if we let that stop us we would never do anything). One source of display materials is the Queensland Museum, and taking pot luck with what sounded sort of interesting, we ordered the "Men's Memorabilia" kit. This kit gets a lot of use at seniors' villages etc. and is an interesting collection of smoking and shaving paraphenalia, long johns and woolen singlets from the 40s, and even a "naturist" magazine from 1937 (there is a nudity warning!). We'll wait with interest to see what reactions it evokes.
