The National Museum are now preparing an exhibition about horses in Australia that will feature the Tighe's yellow cart. And Essendon Historical Society members provided information and memories about the Tighe family milk delivery service that Museum staff found so fascinating they decided to make a documentary featuring them which will be part of the show.
You can read more about this story, and see a wonderful image of the Tighe's horse and cart, in the Moonee Valley Leader of 27th January 2014 (page 11).Congratulations to the Essendon Historical Society for making such a wonderful contribution!
PS. If you have memories of these horse-drawn milk deliveries that you would like to share with the National Museum, email Martha Sear: firstname.lastname@example.org
And of course if you'd like to share any memories or pictures of the Moonee Valley area with your local community, I'm always interested to hear from you. Send an email to email@example.com, or call or visit the Library and ask for Julia.
