The tea tables were the centre of attraction, arranged as they were with accessories borrowed for the occasion from the museum's displays. Left to right are Mrs. J. E. Sullivan, regent of the 25th Elgin Regimental Chapter, IODE; Mrs. R. B. Irvine, St. Thomas Municipal Chapter, IODE, regent; Mrs. Victor DeGraw (pouring), Rodney, a member of Rodney WI and wife of the reeve of the West Elgin community; Mrs. Douglas Todd, West Lorne, a member of that village's WI branch and wife of West Lorne's reeve. Mr. Todd and Mr. DeGraw are both members of the museum board. The annual tea is arranged by members of Elgin County's 32 WI branches, and of St. Thomas IODE chapters."

This can be said to be especially true of the annual Elgin Pioneer Museum tea, which is sponsored jointly by members of the Women's Institute of Elgin County and the IODE Chapters of St. Thomas. Held yesterday afternoon and evening at the museum amid a patriotic setting of flags, in keeping with the Centennial year, the event was an unqualified success. Mrs. M. C. Moore is pouring while standing from left to right are Mrs. Bruce Paker, Mrs. R. D. Macdonald, Mrs. Herbert Jackson, Mrs. John Wise, Mrs. Albert Auckland and Mrs. Charles Phillips.

The top of the desk is used primarily for books but now holds a set of dishes for exhibition purposes. Sitting on the desk is a very old inkwell made of glass with an overlay of silver. Its lace-like design is quite beautiful. John MacColl of London and his daughter Mrs. Helen Pringle, donated the desk, the dishes and the inkwell to the Elgin County Pioneer Museum.

Four black and white photographs used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published May 28, 1963 with captions:
"Along Kettle Creek - The late W. St. Thomas Smith was considered to have been St. Thomas' foremost artist. He painted many pictures, among them the C.N.R. Wabash Station, the early Port Stanley harbor, the boat house at Port Stanley, a sketch about 1890 and one entitled Along Kettle Creek. The latter painting is shown and is part of an exhibition to be displayed at the Elgin County Museum until June 15." (31a)
"Gravel Road Toll-Gate - Although Mrs. St. Thomas Smith, wife of the well-known local artist, was primarily a scuptress, she painted a number of pictures that are note-worthy. One of these, above, is of the old toll-gate on the Gravel Road, and was made in 1887. The structure stood on the north east corner of the property now occupied by the restaurant on No. 4 Highway at Talbotville." (31b)
"Highly-Regarded - F. M. Bell-Smith was in the 1880's an art teacher at Alma College and worked later in Toronto where his paintings were highly regarded. The above picture shows three art students at Alma College and is part of an exhibition that will be on display at the Elgin Pioneer Museum until June 15." (31c)
"Early Liberal Rally - The painting above is of a Liberal Rally in St. Thomas, and was painted in 1893 by Ross Osgood, early artist of this community. The picture shows Sir Wilfred Laurier making a speech and behind him on the platform are Liberal notables of St. Thomas including the late Senator Dr. John H. Wilson, J. B. Davidson, Q.C.; Donald McNish, Squire Hunt and John Thompson. The key to this picture, which is the property of the Sutherland Press, has been lost, and anyone able to provide one is asked to contact officials at the Elgin County Museum." (31d)

This buggy has been on display in Greenfield Village, Dearborn, since 1952. It was loaned with the understanding that if a museum was ever established in Elgin County, it would come back here. The buggy arrived last week and is in a good state of preservation. This baby buggy was made by William Smith, blacksmith, of Talbotville, Ontario, about the year 1865, and years later became a keepsake of his grandson, William H. Lucas, of Windsor, now deceased. It has been presented by Mrs. Lucas to this museum for historic purposes and safe keeping. Mrs. Selena Voaden, St. Thomas, is a daughter of Mr. Smith and is the only living member of the family."

Scope and Content
Black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published May 30, 1964 with caption: "Championship Plow in Replica - The McSherry plow, designed in Iona and made in Ingersoll prior to 1851 by James McSherry, won a medal as the best plow in the world at the World's Fair in London, England. A replica of the plow, shown here, made on the same design, has been located on a Lambeth farm. It is to be donated to the Elgin County Pioneer Museum in June. The donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, acquired the plow about 12 years ago. A relative used the sod-turning equipment as late as 1939 in an Elgin County plowing match."
