You lose some, and then you find some

If you are in the city sometime before the 24th April, you might want to drop into the City Gallery located in the Melbourne Town Hall.

At the moment, the Lost & Found exhibition is being held there. I saw the exhibition featured on television sometime ago, but only decided to drop in while on my way to lunch. It was well worth a drop.

The curators had put together an exhibit of things left behind in the Melbourne Town hall, by previous employees as well as by visitors. Some of the interesting items left in the lost & found department were being shown. And behind some of the exhibits were interesting stories.

When I said things, I meant it quite loosely. There were the usual culprits such as handkerchiefs, spectacles, lots of knitting needles, and hats. And then there are the more exotic lost items such as a dog, as well as a bird, dentures, costumes and luggages. Having been in the town hall for so long, some of these items are antiques, and I’m glad to see them put together, and not left in a room somewhere forgotten.

So, do go and have a look before they closes. You might find something you have lost!
