This item was acquired together with a collection of trade literature covering a range of home appliances, furnishing, decorating and home renovation products from the Flack family who lived in West Brunswick. It appears that they attended the show at the Exhibition Building at a time when they were contemplating renovations to their own home and collected most of the publications there.
