AN AWARD WINNING ALBURY TOURIST ATTRACTION
LIFE IN THE EARLY 1900'S
In 1874 Messrs Rosler and Wagner start a store in Jindera using the present Tea Room as the store, and the three rooms behind as the residence.
From 1874 to 1905, first the North Wing of the residence was built, and later the South Wing was added.
This extensive residence has now been fitted out completely with period furniture and period utensils.
THE MUSIC ROOM
Above is the Music Room, complete with harpsicords, a magnificent organ, and above right is an Edison Record Cabinet built in Wodonga by Thomas Jessup in the 1880's. Note the green wallpaper, the original, which belongs to the 1880's. You can see through the door in the music room into the Girl's Bedroom.
Above is a photo of the Conservatorium, which has some real treasures from the past. Above right is a photo of one of the hand painted plaques on tin, a style favoured in the 1880's. Below left is a closer photo of a popular tradition of mounting birds and placing them in a glass presentation display. Below right is the oldest item at the museum, a Chinese screen of compressed slate material which has been engraved and coloured. This screen dates into the 1700's.
THE DINING ROOM
The Parlour is full of interesting items. Two items shown below, the Victorian Sofa and the Book Case/ Writing Desk, were both in the Collector of Custom's residence in Wodonga in the 1870's.
