Manchester Unity Building Postcard
Ships in 7-14 days
You don't get much closer to Melbourne's secret identity as Bruce Wayne's Gotham City than the Art Deco Gothic of our Manchester Unity Building. Built in part as an act of benevolence, the Manchester Unity Independent Order of Oddfellows pressed ahead with plans for construction at the outset of Australia's Great Depression, with the hope that providing employment and expressing confidence in Australia's economy could relieve some of the suffering that had begun to affect Melbourne's working people. Tours of the restored and refurbished building are one of the most coveted tickets in Melbourne's annual Melbourne Open House program.
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).
