Melbourne’s Milk Bars and the signs that adorned them
This is one of the shop signs found in this article which profiles the decline in Melbourne’s Milk Bars, retail outlets that once dotted the streets. The article features a collection of 22 other shop signs and fascias and was spotted by Stef on the investigatory Finding the Radio Book blog. The comments suggest that the bars are still alive and well in many parts of the city, I wonder if any of them feature in Stephen Banham’s recent Characters book about the lettering and signage landscape of Melbourne?
