Went to a holiday farm this weekend, out near Tingha.
They have a bit of a museum there.
Link to my photobucket album. Theres 58 photos...


Clocks, cameras, radios, TV, phonograph, gramophone and more.

Interesting how collections like that just accumulate on farms over the generations. In the city it's harder to convince the wife "Don't worry, one day we'll open a museum and it will all pay off!".

What a haul, and thanks for the photos. There are quite a few interesting items there.

Noticed a quite number of battey operated radios which for folk out on the farms away from power would have been in use for many years.

I've given thought to the restoration thing,
if you remove some surface rust to make something shiny,
whether or not you were taking away from it.

Great photos, I did recognise the Thorn Atlas in the photos, I HAD one of these, 100% original and in working order, the tube was soft (as one would expect), but was watchable. I moved out of home and the folks trashed it!!
