What's The Story? By Logan Dudley
I think it’s a hat from a war that blew onto a plane and someone found it and took it and when he/she died their relatives found it and donated it to a museum. Then, P.L. Travers walked into a museum one day and saw it. She made the world famous story Mary Poppins based on the story relatives of the ancestors of the man that found it.
The story of the ancestors sounded like this.
It was the hat that belonged to the husband of a lady that got re-married after he died in war. The friend of the lady’s husband survived and returned that hat to his wife. When she died it was passed down to one of her sons that went to the airport and lost it.
Where is it now?
Congratulations to Logan Dudley who was one of three winners of our What's The Story? competition held during the 2017 Mary Poppins Festival.
Take a peek inside the cabinets at The Hub on Kent Street in Maryborough. What do you think is the story behind the objects?
