Virtual Museum: Milk, Cream & Butter

Milk, Cream & Butter is the second installment to our Virtual Museum. It explores the process from milking a cow through to wrapping up the butter. It features ten local objects that were involved in addition to articles, advertisements and photographs.

It also touches on how these commodities impacted on people's lives. For Mrs Mary Lang it was a lengthy part of every day, while for Carnamah child Vida Wells it was annoying and time consuming task. Then there's Bonny, the cow of the local baker, whose death made it into the headlines of the regional newspaper!!

You can see our Milk, Cream and Butter exhibition in our Virtual Museum.
