Registration Plates and Miscellaneous Items from the collection of the Marlborough Vintage Farm Machinery Society Inc
The Marlborough Vintage Farm Machinery Society Inc operates from a number of buildings in the Brayshaw Park complex in Blenheim.
The Society collects and preserves equipment used on farms in the Marlborough district. The restoration of many items is complete while others form on-going projects with members contributing many hours to fully strip and rebuild these relics of our rural past.
This exhibit includes a large number of old Registration Plates. Spot yours? Similarly there are a large number of Fuel Containers and dispensers. Also in here you will find items that do not logically fit in any of the other categories, the quintessential miscellaneous.
If you would like to see the machinery in person, the main collection is housed in the Denton Building at Brayshaw Park. It is open on Sunday afternoons from 1.30 p.m. until 4.30 p.m. There is ample parking and entrance is by donation.
