Melbourne trip

The first day Gail took me treasure hunting and we hit the motherload in an enormous junk shop in Footscray,which went on for ever. We spent hours here and the owner even took us upstairs to look at her private treasures.
The pictures show some of th stuff we bought- antique knockers, keys,an old pilots navigation aid, pianola role, corset, and Gail gloating over our haul. Gail also found a huge rusty plate thingy which she later presented to Michael de Meng at the workshops
