A potpourri of local life

5 February – 23 September 2018

Complimenting Sesqui: an event to remember is another new exhibition, A potpourri of local life.

This display combines fabulous historical photographs with objects from various time periods and is a wonderful platform for you to reminisce on how people dressed, shopped, played and worked, and share with young ones how life used to be.
