This month I had a journalist from South Western Times come back to Policeman’s Way for another feature on the collection. I was happy to have them back and thrilled they managed to capture my passion (read: obsession) for collecting police memorabilia!
Happy reading! And if you’re interesting in coming and having a look at the collection be sure to get in contact. I’d love to hear from you.
On Friday morning I was interviewed by Niomi O’Hara from ABC Radio South West. It was a great opportunity to talk about the collection and promote Policeman’s Way to a broader audience. Take a listen to the recording and let me know what you think!
If you’re interested in hearing even more about the collection or would like to arrange a visit, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise you can send me a message via the contact page.
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.
On Thursday 10th April I had a visit from a dozen Cadillacs and a couple of other “normal” cars to view my police memorabilia collection. The group was part of the Cadillac LaSalle Nationals who were attending their annual convention/get together in Busselton. This group were part of more than 30 Cadillacs who were attending. I had more than 40 people gathered in my collection shed but it was a great event. They were from WA and the Eastern states plus a few from USA. I had to have them park down in the paddock to fit them in. Luckily we have acreage. After an hour or so they all headed back to Busselton.
