More Uniform Buttons


Stokes Vic

Sorry about the quality of the image. It is hard to photograph these highly reflective anodised aluminium buttons. This button may date from 1957 (when Ansett bought out ANA) until 1968 (when the company was renamed Ansett Airlines of Australia).



Crown Casino

No maker’s mark.

Crown  was floated in 1994 and opened its first casino in temporary accomodation. It attracted 7 million visitors in its first year. In 1997 it opened its integrated resort at Southbank, including a casino, hotels, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The company has expanded to Perth and  (notoriously), to Sydney.
