|Description: Black and white glossy photo of the sitting room in Bradley museum. The photo is mounted on the cardstock so that it has a white frame. There are two windows; one on each wall in the picture. In one corner there is a desk with cabinet. In the lower centre of the photo there is a small round table on top of which a tea set is displayed. In the right bottom corner of the picture appears to be a dark coloured sofa. |
The picture was taken inside of the Bradley Museum which was Richard Smith Bradley’s childhood home. The parlour was considered the "good room" of the house and the Bradley's used it for religious services before a Methodist church was established in the area.
Mississauga’s first museum, Bradley Museum, opened as a Centennial Project in 1967; this site has continued to grow and evolve over the decades and is still undergoing developmental changes today. Bradley Museum is situated on a 2 1/4 acre site in the Clarkson area of Mississauga. Presently there are six structures on the Bradley site: three are historic houses and three are reproduction outbuildings (a barn, a drive shed, and an outhouse). The site was named for Bradley House, when the original structure moved to the site. It is now owned and operated by the City of Mississauga and continues to educate, entertain and grow.
