PROJECTS – ORGANISATIONS VOLUNTEER RUN
Hervey Bay Historical Village & Museum
Publication of new book 'Moments in Time: A Pictorial History of Hervey Bay & Surrounds 1890 to 2018'
The Hervey Bay Historical Village & Museum is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation established in 1974. This project centred on publication of Moments in Time: A Pictorial History of Hervey Bay & Surrounds 1890 to 2018, the third major book published by the Museum in recent years. This 200-page, full-colour publication involved 12 months of collecting, sorting, compilation and editing by the volunteers, with many hours spent editing and enhancing some of the old photographs and researching the locations.
From the Museum’s extensive Collection, they accessed extremely rare glass negatives from the 1890s, postcards from the 1920s, and panagrams of 1950 as well as the decades up to 2019.
The project was supported by Fraser Coast Regional Council and has been extremely well received by the general public.
