The Walcha Historical Society will hold another afternoon tea this Saturday between 2 pm and 4 pm at the Pioneer Cottage Museum to showcase some of the children’s garments stored in the archives.

One of the highlights is a collection of boys clothes worn in the 1800’s by a local lady’s grandfather. The garments are still in the possession of the family and are just on loan for the day.

There will also be examples of eye-watering finely knitted baby clothes by Alice Green, Peter Pan style lace collars and a Russian style dress.
