The Broken Hill Historical Society is lucky enough to have “Bushy” Kevin White back as a presenter for its next meeting on Monday 9 March.
Many Society members will remember Bushy’s address to a Society meeting in 2019, where he plundered the marvellous White’s Mineral Art and Mining Museum for a handful of specially chosen items from way back in the Hill’s mining history, and brought them along to ask about each one: “Do you know what this is”?
He’s doing it again.
And in spite of the fact that Society members will no doubt either have wandered through the tunnel stopes of the museum that Bushy created from redwood timbers or, indeed, worked in the real thing, Bushy is still betting on the possibility that he just might bring along something that no-one can easily recognise.
The next gathering of the Broken Hill Historical Society takes place on Monday evening, 9 April, at 7.30 in the Ralph Wallace Research Centre (back of the Synagogue Museum, Wolfram Street). The first meeting of the night will be the Society’s brief AGM with the selection of 2020 office bearers. The second is the General Meeting, picking up on some of the community input from the Society’s very successful Open Forum meeting in February, as well as other issues, and concluding with Bushy’s “show and tell”.
All are always very welcome to participate in meetings of the Broken Hill Historical Society.
