As I walked by that building every day to school, absolutely scared by the elderly lady who sat on that very seat. Her name was Polly, but I cannot remember her surname.
She never did anything to scare me……she just looked severe. The seat was a fascination.
That seat is a fascination – and so cleverly constructed from slim tree branches. Many people recall the lady who lived in the cottage behind the museum. She is often remembered leaning on the gate, chatting to passerbys.
If you would like to contact us on the museum email we would appreciate the opportunity to hear more detail of your recollection.
The exhibition of the signature cloths is now in place and will remain until April 2013. We haven’t been able to find a lot of information about Mrs Haub – anything you could help us with would be greatly appreciated.
I was contacted many months ago by someone from the museum through Ancestry.com. During our contact about my great aunt Lil she said that she would get a photo to me as I am unable to get to the exhibition. I sent her information regarding Lilian and her relatives.
