The 'W-Class' tram was affectionately known in Melbourne as the 'Green Rattler' in homage to its sturdy but prone-to-clatter construction. Green Rattler trams hail from an age when Melbourne still had our beloved platoons of Tram Conductors - known as 'connies', - who were famous for chatting, doing magic tricks, reciting tram-poetry and even singing. The end of the era of connies was widely mourned, and Melburnians still have a soft spot for the Heritage Listed 'W-Class' trams that run on our city circle route, or serve as moving restaurants and tourist attractions. 

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).
