Local History Exhibition

Historical photographs and original artworks are exhibited side-by-side in a new exhibition to be launched at Eltham Library Community Gallery on Thursday 5 December.

Looking Back, Looking Forward: Summer Fun in Yarra Plenty celebrates all things summer - picnics, swimming, boating, horsing around and enjoying nature with family and friends during long summer days.

This exhibition is a collaboration between members of the Yarra Plenty Heritage Group (including Andrew Ross Museum, Eltham District Historical Society, Greensborough Historical Society, Heidelberg Historical Society, Nillumbik Historical Society, Nillumbik Reconciliation Group and St Andrews Queenstown Historical Society) and artists from Nillumbik U3A Drawing and Painting Group.

Join us at Eltham Library Monday 9 December 7.00pm for an informal presentation of local historical photographs all about summer and outdoor recreation.

The exhibition is open 5 December 2019 - 6 January 2020.
