Waterloo Region Museum, Part 2

November 23, 2011 at 1:12 pm Leave a comment

A theatre  for special events such as speakers and the storytelling series that’s going on for the second season. A partition with doors tucks into the wall and closes this theatre off from the lobby.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A two-sided screen and a slide show of immigrants coming to Canada by boat.

I’ll stand and look at the all the pictures next time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wall display of trunks and cases that carried worldly belongings of people who came to Canada.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A reproduction of a painting. People used Conestoga wagons as their means of travel in earlier days.  This display was up on a wall and I couldn’t get the painter’s name. Next visit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An old bell tower, next to a bricked facade of a building.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One more pic for Part 2

A model of Professor Jenkins and his bicycle on the high wire on which he crossed the gorge and Niagara Falls. To think we had someone so daring!

It turns out, he was pretty smart and had much of the risk removed, something most people wouldn’t have known. Imagine the awe and excitement of people watching him cross, wondering if he’d fall off the wire, bicycle and all and into the water hundreds of feet below.

Not for me, this daring feat!

 

 

 

There’s much more to see at this attractive new museum. I hope you’ll come to see it soon. Go here for more information.
