More happy snaps

One last post about Melbourne as I try to make that holiday feeling last just a little bit longer…

One of our most fabulous finds was the soundtrack from a 1950s musical that Mr A came across at Windsor while I was rummaging through a giant box of sewing patterns. It’s a release by the World Record Club, which in the 1950s and 1960s issued mainly jazz and classical music records through a membership mail order system, and had offices in London and Melbourne (hence finding this LP there, I guess). It’s in absolutely pristine condition and features a gorgeous illustration of a gent who’s happily just checked the contents of his mailbox… kind of like Mr A when he receives a package in the post, I reckon!

The Most Happy Fella record

As always, we saw plenty of skillful and thought-provoking street art. This boy was on a building on Chapel Street and, along with a once-beautiful and quite enormous bird illustration over at Fitzroy that has now been completely obliterated, it made me wonder why annoying people have to tag over other people’s artwork!

    That artwork is lovely – pity about the tag.
