Nelson Historical Society Journal, Volume 1, Issue 3, November 1958



Since the publication of our last Bulletin, the members of the Nelson Historical Society have steadily continued to gather, classify, record and store a steadily increasing volume of items Of historical value, and we are very grateful for the manner in which valued relics are being donated or loaned to us. This clearly indicates the increasing interest and confidence in us by the general public, and is of great assistance to our work.

An outstanding effort during recent months was the Historical Exhibition held in the Nelson School of Music, as part of the Nelson City Centennial celebrations.

In this exhibition we had the wholehearted co-operation of all Nelson associated societies and other organisations and individuals able to contribute exhibits of historical interest and the result proved to be so attractive that the exhibition had to be extended for several days beyond the originally arranged period of time.

Recently also as a result of requests made by enthusiastic members, the Society sponsored a meeting to consider the formation of an Antiques Section, at which meeting it was unanimously decided that this Section be formed, and officers were elected.

Our membership is steadily increasing in numbers and we feel our efforts are making substantial progress towards the attainment of our original aims and objectives.

I commend this little bulletin to our friends, and trust they will find the contents both interesting and informative.

Lewis E. H. Baigent,
