New book – The Way It Was – Shopping in Muswellbrook

This recently published book arose as a result of a number of group meetings in which people brought along articles which they had purchased in the past in Muswellbrook. The articles caused much discussion and reminiscence about the early days. Glenda Murray who led the gatherings put together this book which has proved very popular.

In the future it is hoped that there will be further gatherings and the production of a follow up book. The present  book contains 46 pages in colour. Cost $15
