Tea-towel: Map of Queensland, c1950s

Tea-towel: Map of Queensland, c1950s. Despite the curious shape of the map itself this appears to be one of the most popular tea-towels produced as it was printed in several colourways including pink, buff, mauve and green. This tea-towel probably dates to the early 1950s as the popular tourist destination of the Gold Coast had not developed sufficiently to merit inclusion. Although strangely located in central-western Queensland, the identification of Brisbane with the Story Bridge is very early. Collection of Glenn Cooke
