Do you have any information on the McKelvie Milk cart which I believe was exhibited at this exhibition

Museum Victoria Comment
Hi Alf. Ohinemuri Regional History Journal (NZ) indicates that it was actually a model of a milk cart, built by George McKelvie, that was exhibited at the 1888 Juvenile Exhibition and actually won a first prize. There is some indication that the cart is now at the Paeroa Museum and you may wish to contact them to see if they have any further information. You can also look at the Official Catalogue at the State Library of Victoria to further investigate this.
