Mt Al­bert’s his­tory buffs want your help

Central Leader - - News -

The Mt Al­bert His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety wants to hear from peo­ple with sto­ries and me­men­tos of Mt Al­bert’s past.

Spokes­woman Mary Ino­mata says items like old tram tick­ets, ra­tion books, let­ters or pho­to­graphs that may seem like they are of no value, may be of in­ter­est to oth­ers.

“Even paint­ings, school re­ports or pro­grammes with some lo- cal con­nec­tion will be re­warded with a cup of tea and light re­fresh­ments,” she says.

She asks bud­ding his­to­ri­ans to make sure they record names and dates on the back of any pho­tos they want to archive.

The so­ci­ety next meets at 2pm at the Se­nior Cit­i­zens Hall at Mt Al­bert’s War Memo­rial Re­serve, 751-761 New North Rd, on May 9.
