During History Week 2012, Benjamin Thorn spoke at the Tweed Heads Regional Library.

This talk looks at clothing advertising from the 1950s, particularly in regional NSW. We look at the links between distributors and retailers and at the images that were used to promote Australian and overseas brands. Much of the talk will concentrate on the technical aspects of creating advertising images and will include unpublished oral history material from workers in the printing and advertising industries.

Benjamin Thorn is curator of the Museum of Printing in Armidale.

Brought to you by the History Council of NSW as part of the History Week 2012 Speaker Connect program in partnership with the Royal Australian Historical Society and proudly supported by the Copyright Agency Limited and the Your Community Heritage Program.
