"Salt, vinegar, mustard pepper, if I dare, I can do better"

This iconic landmark, known to locals as 'Little Audrey', was designed in 1936, and was Australia's first animated neon sign. The  whimsical design refers to the name of the brand of Vinegar it promoted - Skipping Girl Brand Vinegar - which in turn paid homage to a children's skipping rhyme popular at the time.

When the sign was removed and destroyed in 1968, there was such public outcry at the loss of this much loved landmark, that a replica was built and installed. Today's 'Little Audrey' is Heritage listed and illuminated in the evenings by a battery of donated solar panels. 

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).
