Designed by Melbourne creative and 'history boy', Brady Michaels, this tea towel depicts the city of Melbourne on 1894. During the Victorian Gold Rush of the 1850s & '60s, "Marvellous Melbourne" was amongst the grandest cities in the world, rapidly expanding and investing heavily in infrastructure. By 1894 the boom was well and truly over, but many familiar areas were already established: Hawthorn, Flemington, Carlton, Fitzroy, Northcote, Brunswick, Coburg, Preston, Heidelberg, Williamstown, Windsor, St Kilda, Brighton are all recognsable on this map. Look out for Sandridge, the literal sand ridge that was excavated to create the city's Turning Basin, where the mouth of the Yarra River meets Port Philip Bay.

  • Designed and printed in Melbourne
  • 100% Linen fabric - absorbent, durable, lint-free
  • Approximately 50 x 70cm (standard tea towel size)
  • Packaged in a paper band, with an informative description of the design on the back

Care tips:

  • Cold wash in mild detergent before use to soften (they will get softer with each wash)
  • Please note, your tea towel wil shrink a little with first wash, but this will not affect the print
  • Iron on reverse side to print
