Remember these?

The spoon has a small piece of wax candle in it (supplied), the syringe is used to inject a few drops of water into the tube at the back of the boat, you light the candle and within seconds it starts going "putt - putt" and shoots off across the bath or swimming pool or smooth pond.

Runs for as long as the candle: about five minutes!

The 1954 classic documentary by John Heyer about the Maree to Birdsville mail run.

It won Best Documentary award at Cannes Film Festival that year, something never achieved by an Australian production

Tom Kruse was legendary: he later received an OAM and died only recently in his late 90s.

When Coopers Creek was in flood, the Ford blitz kept as spare at the other side was used to complete the run, after transferring the entire load by punt.

  The Leyland Badger, heroically overloaded, crosses sandhills, vast flat plains, dry watercourses and sandy desert.

Still just as moving today as it was to audiences 60 years ago.

Bulkhead panel from Sydney R Class 1848

This is certainly unique, and genuine, from a pre-WWII  R Class Sydney tram built in the mid 1930s

Made of wood varnished with shellac. About 36 inches x 13 inches

It,  and another matching one,  was located above the sliding entrance door to the saloon from the vestibule.

I was intended to be hinged to give access to lighting controls. How it latched closed is not obvious.

In only fair condition as photos show,  given its age. 

 

The item is probably best collected from the shop to avoid any damage in transit, it being an awkward large item
