The Courthouse and The Furniture

Stratford Courthouse and Shire Office (with the old bank on the left), about 1950.


We have been setting up the Courthouse furniture in time for it to be on display for the Fair on the 6th - the first time it has been out together since it was handed over by the Shire about 1980.

So we started off doing a little more research (we knew it was by the Richmond firm of Bell Brothers, made in 1885), and we got hooked.

So now there is a book (40 pages, comb bound), that will be joining our Dairy Factories books at the Fair.

Do come and have a look at the furniture on the 6th.
