Trip down memory lane

On Friday, September 25, a total of 23 Probus Club of Kingsley members (men and ladies) enjoyed an outing to Whiteman Park with their own park guide, Reg.

Starting the day with morning tea and a look around the Revolutions Museum, members then enjoyed a train ride through the bush, which was at its flowering best at that time of year. This was followed by a casual stroll through the park’s very well-maintained grass areas.

Then it was on to the Village shops where members stopped at the ‘Bright Press’ printing shop. This shop is a working museum creating and printing wedding stationery, business /greeting cards, etc. Members experienced an interesting short lecture on the history of these very old printing presses still being used today.

Next it was onto the Village Cafe where a very nice lunch was served – the fish and chips were a very popular choice among members. 

Refreshed and a bit behind schedule due to a nice, lazy and chatty lunchtime, members moved onto the tractor museum. This museum provoked many a childhood memory among the group with such an extensive display of old tractors and farm equipment.

Final stop of this “down memory lane” tour was the famous car museum, and what a museum it is. An extremely well-maintained and presented museum of which Whiteman Park and Perth should be proud. There is so much to see – the collection of Holden cars, especially those from the 1950s and 60s, brought back many happy memories of those early days that were shared between members.

A very pleasant and interesting day’s outing was had by all.
