Media Tidbits from the Past: Part 1

Queenscliff Sentinel, Drysdale, Portarlington, Sorrento Advertiser (Vic), 3rd August 1918 page 4.

Advocate (Burnie, Tas), 23rd March 1938 page 4. Real cutlery, or just figural buttons?

The Riverine Herald (Echuca, Vic), 9th September 1944 page 3. An idea for fashionable ladies during the war.


The Argus (Melbourne), 11th October 1955 page 4. I agree that some of the eagles on buttons are odd. Perhaps the version here is the object of the writer’s derision?
