Today is International Cat day! In 1924, Ada Perry migrated to Australia as a widow with eight children. She struggled to work a piece of isolated government allocated land at Mirboo North, until 1928 when a buggy accident left her unable to continue physical labour, so she created craft items while her children worked the land. The items in the Museum's collection are prototypes, as she kept the first of anything she created for her children and then gave away the rest. Read more about Ada's story and the collection by clicking the link below.
