Bradley Wayne Falappi Titanic Collection.
Bradley Falappi, a 51 year old Sydney man and passionate Titanic enthusiast generously donated his entire memorabilia collection of the ill-fated cruise liner SS Titanic to the Historical Society.
The 33 year collection covers a broad scope from an impressive miniature model Titanic to the steamships's floor plans, dinnerware to cutlery, books to postcards, a suvivors autograph to historic photographs just to mention a few.
Mr. Falappi chose the Historical Society because of the Sturt park monument. His donation comes 100 years after a monument was erected in the local Sturt Park, commemorating the bravery of the bandsmen as they couragously continued to play in a effort to suppress the panic of the passengers as the ship went down.
