Letters to the Editor - April 2015

Wonderful Thomas

I left my handbag on the 70 tram a few days before Christmas – credit card, keys, everything in it.

I got home to discover no keys to get through security. Panic!

I went back to the stop at NewQuay and waited for the 70 tram to ask them to alert the driver. Low and behold, the same tram had been resting at the terminus and started back with the correct time on the timetable.

I told the driver “I left my bag”, “Yes” came the happy voice “Here it is”.

“What is your name?” I asked. “Thomas,” he replied.

I just wanted to thank the honest man (a rare commodity, honesty!). Who is Thomas the tram driver? What a wonderful man.

Putting us on the map

Although I was disappointed to read of the site change for the MAB Corporation’s permanent art collection, I feel this leaves another door open for a museum dedicated to the art of children.  

The Museum of Children’s Art and Toys or “MoCAT” for short is a museum dedicated to collecting, celebrating, displaying and promoting the art and toys of children from around the world.  

Imagine a display of children’s handmade toys from the Sudan, art projects curated by children from the Pilbara region or a display of children’s landscape paintings borrowed from the Smithsonian.

Currently, there are two such museums in the world: the Museum of Children’s Arts (or Mocha), Oakland, California and the International Museum of Children’s Art in Oslo, Norway.  We would be the third.
MoCAT would not only put Melbourne on the map as truly the “City of the Arts” but also, provide Harbour Town with a refreshing venue for families, schools and individuals.
