My Place – Our Places

17th February to 17th March 1pm-4pm Sundays

Our Seniors in the Black Diamond Districts have embraced change from the post WW2 Baby Boom. The “fibro’s” expanded out along the beachsides to the exploding Sydney commuter belt. Now the ‘fibro’s” are giving way to multistorey beachside “palaces”. “My Place – Our Places”  aims for something more tangible. Images and stories from the childhood days of the Black Diamond’s Seniors. Stirring Seniors memories and stories for the Seniors. Our Museum’s projects “Footprints” and “Stories of Seniors” are also featured in the exhibition.
