THE Town Hall Gallery has a very local time capsule on display.

While Isobel Harvie has been having a ball and bringing you everything fabulous about the 50s, a current photography exhibit shows the way we were a mere nine years ago.

Women of Note is currently on display, showcasing local women and their stories.

It was originally a project for Warramunda in 2009, spearheaded by photographer Kylie Biltris and scribed by Toni Thomas before it was tucked away from the public.

But now it’s on display in all its glory.

The nine-year project happened somewhat by accident, making itself into an invaluable timecapsule for the town, and now there are plans to turn it into a book.

Helen Walsh, Jan Smith, Liz Spicer, Sharman Stone, Liza Curtis, Carol Howell, Isobel Harvie, Liz Dillon, Gillian Banks, Mary Bowman and Sandi Websdale are just some of the locals who feature.

But Isobel Harvie believes they could have filled the hall if they kept going.

“There are definitely a lot more women in town who could be featured in this, there are some wonderful people,” she said.

“Some of the women featured have passed on through the years, others have moved away but there are many who are still very active in town.”

You can see it at the Town Hall Gallery on Allan St. For more information visit kyabramtownhall.com.au
