The two photos above show a number of the bookcases in the library housing a variety
of books and pottery. The two Mahogany bookcases in the left hand photo, at either
side of the fireplace, were presented to the Lodge by the Zetland Chapter, and the
Lodge subsequently acquired the large Breakfront bookcase in the right hand photo
from the same source, Davies & Co in London.
Two further bookcases, one seen in the right hand photo, which stand either side of the Library doorway, were a gift to the Lodge by Bro. Gilbert Johnson, who was, as below, a long term Librarian to the Lodge.
The large Mahogany table in the Library was made by a member of the Lodge, Bro. John Raper, around 1823.
The first bookcase acquired by the Lodge was in 1879 in the sum of £14 17s 0d, this book case is still in use by the Lodge in the robing room.
A large collection of pottery, together with a presentation bookcase in the “museum room”, was acquired from the Exors of Bro. E. J. Hardcastle, a former Librarian of the Lodge.
