Theft at the Homestead

Before everything was prepackaged, council officers would visit commercial premises checking the accuracy of scales

Unfortunately we have had a theft at the Altona Homestead over the last month or two, as per pictures a standard set of weights and measures was on display – these are made of brass and are very heavy, the ball weight was approx 25cm across and the measures from 10cm diameter to approx 20cm. They were taken for brass value only as the glass lids were left.

If anyone knows a metal recycler or has any info please contact us – if the person who borrowed them would like to return them they can be left on our front porch.
