History Lesson

Recently Lyssy May has had the immense pleasure of working with pages from 1920's & 1930's editions of the Queensland Times to create a series of bespoke wallets for Province Modern Country in Ipswich. The owner of the store, Naomi, discovered the newspapers when renovating her Queenslander.

Locals have been loving the ability to take home a piece of history with their beautiful advertisements and compelling articles about the turbulent times of war. A favourite in the latest batch features an advertisement for "King Tea". Whilst the love of a good cup of tea is still shared amongst females I am sure the words of this ad are highly unlikely to make an appearance decades later...."to be known as the perfect hostess is the rightful aim of every good housewife"!
