weekly publications that are only there for a short duration for
perusal, so there is no permalink for me to share.
In the latest edition of the North East Regional Extra featured there (dated July 27-August 2, 2011) there is a cover story entitled "Filled With History" in which the Eldorado Museum is
showcased. In the article they tell about having a corkscrew that was
allegedly used by Ned Kelly when he stopped by a house for a drink on
the way back from Jerilderie. Since the gang was worried about
poisoning he would only accept an unopened bottle and used the
corkscrew that the family saved. Also there is another item of great
interest on display there....Ellen Kelly's chair! The article stated
that it was lent to the museum by Loretta Redfern and that her father
bought chairs that were supposedly from Mrs. Kelly's house at Greta at
auction years ago. It went on to say that the museum has a photo of
Ellen in a "remarkably similar chair."
