The MILK BARS Book By Eamon Donnelly.
Documenting Australia's fading Corner Stores. 15 years in the making, a richly nostalgic, colourfully illustrated, photography coffee table book celebrating an iconic Australian invention, the Milk Bar!
A large format hardcover, 400 page coffee table book to be proudly printed in Australia, the book features photographs from an expansive 6000 image project documenting the last of the shopfronts, interiors, sun-kissed signage and ghost signs of Australian Milk Bars, Corner Stores & Mixed Businesses.
The book also showcases family photographs, archival imagery, nostalgic graphics and adverts dating back to the 1930s. It will bring back your Milk Bar memories and bring the colourful history of the Milk Bar, an Australian invention that took over the world, to life.
“Eamon has a knack for capturing moments of Australian life like few others. Our past needs to be valued, documented and celebrated. The simplicity of the Milk Bar experience, a cherished memory of our childhoods, is one that should be elevated to a higher plane. Get behind this. I certainly am.”
