Tablecloth Update

Last weekend, Isla Bank residents (former and present) came from far and wide for afternoon tea at the museum. Thankfully, someone answered our question about the tablecloth - the occasion it was made for and so on. It was made by Bessie Johnstone as a fundraiser for the Association of Presbyterian Women. You could have your signature embroidered on it for a shilling.

It's always so good when people gather at the museum. There is usually someone who comes out of the woodwork and gives us the background on an object or photograph that we have questions about.

Special thanks to Georgie Carter and everyone else who made the day a great success.

We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
