behind every object there’s a story

The Zara Clark Museum is run by the National Trust.

In my view, this small museum is well curated. The objects are grouped in themes. There is largely a focus on the local history of Charters Towers.  Importantly, there are stories of the people associated with the objects. One of the more poignant pieces is a letter from a soldier to his mother, placed beside an unfinished pair of knitted socks.

I took quite a lot of photographs here this morning, largely as source ideas for Now and Then.  Watch that other space in the near future for stories behind each of these images once further research is done.
