WA Product Labels

22 Pins226 Followers
Ephemera (objects which are not intended to be kept around for a long time) can tell us a lot about society at the time they were produced. The State Library of Western Australia has quite an extensive collection of product labels, only a small proportion of which have been digitized. This is a small sample of what is held in the broader collection.
