- Advertisement for a performance of the all-girl folk band Tiddas (Sally Dastey, Amy Saunders and Lou Bennett) at the Sarah Sands Hotel, to be performed in 18 and 25 March 1992.
From a collection of posters and ephemera displayed on the walls of Mario's Cafe, 303 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne, between December 1991 and Easter 1992. The collection was removed when the wall was repainted and renovated. Posters were put up with tape and 'blu-tack'; some damage to some items resulted when these were removed. The collection, including repeats, is essentially as it was when removed (cigarette smoke included).
