The Melbourne Museum of Printing held a fund raising open day yesterday and they could not have been more please with the turn out – “a thousand times more people than we normally get!”. It was shoulder to shoulder throughout the museum – housed in a modest workshop in Moreland Street, Footscray, Melbourne. I’m sure for a lot of us this was our first visit, and I have always been meaning to go, but it took their cry for help to get myself there – and I’m pleased I did – it’s fantastic to see a place like this operating and demonstrating the printing process of the not too distant past.

They are currently under threat of eviction after 25 years – after the success of yesterday I hope they have managed to raise enough funds to keep this treasure running.
