Lunchboxes on the Terrace..



If you've been reading about Perth here for a while you will know how much I 💙 St Georges Terrace. The terrace, running parallel with the Swan River is the heart of Perth's CBD, the architecture an eclectic mix of heritage nestled between modern skyscrapers. It's where you will unexpectedly come across a window like this filled with fabulous vintage lunch boxes and reflections of life on the terrace. Nice one Lunchbox, such a cool window display. Was hard to choose which lunchboxes to highlight, settled for the original line-up of Australia's iconic rock band AC/DC, bet that was a big seller in the 70's and the ever glamorous Marilyn Monroe. Do you have memories of a favourite lunchbox, or like me, was it waaay too long ago to remember :) Happy weekend, take care and stay safe..

  1. I can't recall ever having a lunch box. It was usually packed in a paper bag.

  11. They are great. Like you, I cannot remember mine, but I expect it was some plastic thing, containing my Vegemite or jam sandwiches wrapped in wax paper.

  12. My lunch boxes were the humble paper bag with stuff wrapped in waxed paper. I think the ones sold then were either Disney -- Mickey, Minnie, and Donald Duck -- or something like Hopalong Cassidy.

  13. I think mine said "Margarine" on the lid - my mother used to obtain the catering packs of marg from her work and use the empties for our lunches. Can't have been very cool by I don't remember anyone commenting on it.
