Electric Servants

Calthorpes’ House is situated on the crest of a hill on Mugga Way. To avoid an accident risk, buses should not drop students off on the hillcrest. Buses should drop students further down the street, at a point where the bus is clearly visible to other traffic. The bus will not be able to park on Mugga Way. Parking is available on Torres, Wickham or Vancouver Streets. There is limited parking for cars on site at Calthorpes’ House, just follow the circular driveway around to the parking area.

It is 1927 and the Calthorpe family have just moved into their brand new home. The house includes all the modern appliances and labour-saving devices of the time. Explore changes in technology and find out whether toast really does taste better cooked the old-fashioned way.

Why not make it a day and visit both Calthorpes’ House and Mugga-Mugga Cottage. A visit to both properties will illustrate the differences in the daily lives of two families, one which enjoyed the luxuries of all the ‘mod cons’ and one which still lived a simple, rural life.
