17 Longevity

Iā€™m joining Becky in her October Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word Past. Look for #PastSquares. This month we’re travelling back in time in the western Queensland town of Miles and surrounds. We’ll explore the local area and join in the festivities at the Miles Back to the Bush Festival.

Miles Historical Village

The General Store, like all the other buildings along the main street of the village, dates from the 19th century.

The containers on the shelves inside are also vintage. They might be old fashioned and their contents long gone, but many of these brands can still be found on our modern supermarket shelves.

How many do you recognise?

  1. Ah yes, I recognise a few of these. The Kodak film box is exactly like the ones we used to have (in those good old pre-digital camera days) and other items have familiar names, but not familiar packaging. The fancy biscuit tins remind me of the sorts of things we would have at Christmas time as a huge treat and then my mum would use the tins for home made cakes.

  2. I love old containers and packets like these, they are so decorative compared to what we get these days.
    Last year I looked round a reconstructed Victorian street set within a museum not far from me – it was built from the original fronts of shops and houses, salvaged during the 1950s slum clearances, and everything in there is from the Victorian period or earlier. The corner shop has lots of old tins and packets on display, some were still around when I was a child. It’s a very interesting place, if you want to take a look it’s in the ‘museum’ category on my blog, scroll down to Lark Hill Place, Salford
