An Archives or a Museum ?

Filed under: Archives or Museum — archivesoz @ 5:31 am

If one is to record events of past times it is also essential to capture some of the past memories, whether they be written (such as poems, sermons, Certificates or Awards) but it is also essential to balance this with objects of the times that these were recorded. We have in our Archives not only Passionist Memorabilia but also some of the instruments of the times (such as our first Roneo Spirit Duplicator, a Tin that held Gramaphone needles, a tin of Corn Plasters, a variety of counters used to record Communions and Confessions.)

Early Cameras, and stacks of old black and white photographs.

An early Fan, (totally prohibited by modern day safety standards.)

Book Press and various book-binding equiptment, Sandal Making, and Rosary bead construction.

a primitive hand drill

early shaving kits

and clothing and vestments used over the years.

For we not only record our men, but also the lives that they lived.

As an Archivist I not only research the people but to grow in deeper understanding of the conditions they lived in, because we look back at the Past, we record the Present, so that we can grow in the future.

I have now added a male mannequin to display a variety of uniforms, Bishops, Military Chaplains, and our original full dress of Habits, Birretta's, and Mantles.

Other future projects could include many of the objects that the early Passionists were so familiar with, rather like creating an atmosphere that one would find on a movie set. Because by so doing we understand more about their lifestyle and difficulties

Please feel free to use this medium to enquire or add additions  from your memories to our archives
