I am a freelance writer and photographer from Sydney who has now had five books published on fishing. I also write for the NSW Fishing Monthly, Visit the Shire, Fisho App & Tackle Tactics.
I also like to travel and experience new things to do.
Catch up on some local history, display of vintage postcards
Come one, come all to the Linnwood Historic House Open Day on the 10th of July 2016. Here you will be amazed at the cars that the American Independent Car Clubs have on display. You will be able to talk to the owners of the magnificently restored cars about how they restored their pride and joy.

You will be able to look under the hoods of some of the cars to see how much care has been taken to restore these cars to their former glory. Why not get a few pictures while you are there. You may even have a similar car and would like to join one of their clubs. The Major Exhibitors will be the American Independent's Car Display, the Studebaker Car Club, the Packard Car Club, the Willys, Overland, the Knight Register and the Hudson-AMC Car Club.
Maybe you could ask the band manager for a special request. Inside the house there will be a display of vintage postcards and photographs called "Reminiscing - Postcards and Photographs from Days Gone By" in addition to the usual art & craft stalls.

For a small fee of $3, you will be able to go inside the house and marvel at the way that it has been restored with the help of the Friends of Linnwood. The Friends of Linnwood Inc formed in 2002 after a community led campaign was successful in saving the Linnwood Estate from being sold and redeveloped. They hold regular Open Days to raise money for continued restoration and conservation work on the house. All of which is done by volunteers, working together to promote Linnwood throughout the local and wider community.

So come along on the 10th of July and not only help out the keep the restoration and upkeep of Linnwood House going, but have a great time walking around the grounds looking at the cars from the American Independent Car Clubs, buy a sausage or have a cake or two while listening to some great music from the fantastic City of Holroyd Brass Band.
