I found this old Art Deco ad as we detoured off the main road to check out the town of Talbot in goldfields of Central Victoria.
You can just make out that is for Henderson’s which I guess was a garage of motor car sales room. I could be completely off the mark and I’d love to find a similar advert in a newspaper to find out more about Henderson’s.
The ad says stop that galloping and a picture of a 1920s car with perhaps a plane flying over it. If you look carefully there is an even older ad painted underneath this one. You can just make out a larger version of the car covering the front part of the small car and stretching up towards the plane. There is also some very faint writing at the top of the ad but I can’t make it out.
I like to think this is a true Art Deco that has survived into the 21st Century and just shows you that sometimes you need to step of the well beaten path to find something interesting.
