On Sunday 27th April we had a visit from 21 members of the Busselton Collectors Club to see my collection of Police memorabilia. Subsequently I received a phone call from one of the members who said he wanted to give me a Police Book for my collection.
Yesterday I received that book which is the Police Gaol Register for Mt Morgans Police Station from January 1903 until it closed on 21st April 1911. Its all handwritten in pen and ink. Mt Morgan is or was commonly known as Morgans, a goldfield near to Laverton in Western Australia. The book when closed measures 320mm by 470mm and is 60mm thick. Its a bit weather beaten but a great historical piece. I need to get another cabinet to display it.
As luck would have it I had more visitors today and was offered a glass cabinet. Just have to take the trailer and pick it up.
