1922 meets 2012 to wish you a Merry Christmas!

This is the cover of a booklet produced by the Midland Railway Company in London, England in 1922. It was marketed mostly in the United Kingdom encouraging people to purchase and move to the Company's lands in Western Australia. Among these lands were Waddy Forest and most of eastern Carnamah.

We may have added in the Christmas tree and the star, but that's because we'd like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year.



It's been a big year for us and 2013 is shaping up to be a solid rival.


During the year now drawing to a close we took part in the Safe Keeping Exhibition at the Perth Town Hall, contributed to the Busy Archivist's Blogging Tool Kit, unveiled our Window to the Past, and benefited greatly from the assistance of virtual volunteers. Last but certainly not least we celebrated the Official Opening of our Extended Carnamah Museum.

The new year will see another six exhibits added to our virtual museum and the launch of online educational packages for schools. 2013 will also mark the 100th birthday of the Carnamah townsite. Since our tradition of making a Christmas image is only in its second year we'd like to finish up by also sharing last year's...

You've done well with your 2012 Christmas image, the 2011 one was going to be hard to top - but it's right up there - but both are gorgeous, and show the histoy of the area. The Museum did have a big 2012, and no doubt 2013 will be even more exciting for you. Merry Christmas and see you in 2013 :)
