the timeless land

These unique and colourful posters were lovingly created by a dedicated teacher some decades ago.  However, it is not known who made them, when or where they were used.

They chronicle the history of the Illawarra from white settlement to the 1930s and were intended to be a visual feast for the children of the classroom.

Items like this rarely survive the annual clean up within schools, so it is a joy to have them on display in the Illawarra Museum as a reminder of the way classrooms once used to be.
