Communications Past and Present

The exhibition traces changes in different forms of communication in the district since the early days of settlement. The main subjects include Postal service, telecommunications, railways, roads, radio and television. A mockup of part of a lounge room of around 1960 has been created with radio, b&w tv and dial telephone. A model railway representing the former Foster station is shown in the dress cabinet. Also an early commercial projector once used in local halls is displayed.
