In 1997, Swan Street’s Dimmeys clock tower and globe was ranked first in The Age newspaper's 'Melbourne Icons' series. The clock tower was painted yellow and black in 1981 to mark the 350th AFL game of Richmond footballer Kevin Bartlett, and a famous mural depicting Dimmeys Gold Rush founding and the history of the store became a clarion call for locals when the site was redeveloped in 2008. The famous clock tower and mural survived redevelopment and have been carefully preserved.

Postcards featuring Harper and Charlie's range of original retro prints. Celebrate the culture, architecture and design of Melbourne and Australia with a tiny piece from Melbourne's contemporary design community!

Inspired by art from the 1950s and 60s, Harper and Charlie use vintage print techniques to achieve their authentic feel. If you look closely you might be able to spot the careful details - slipped registration, slight colour-bleed, or light scuffs in the design - that give these beautiful designs their warmth and character.

Material(s): Printed in Australia on 100 percent recycled 300gsm card.

Dimensions (cm): 14.8 x 10.5 (A6 standard postcard size).
