I’ve some new buckles to share with you.
The buckles below are labelled “Brighton Buttons and Buckles”. (They were seen on EBay) There is a Brighton Button shop in Bay Street, Brighton that has been there for over 100 years, so maybe this was a display in this shop.
Below I have assembled a nice little collection of memorablia of the Commonwealth Railways, since absorbed into the Australian National Railways in 1975. It includes a menu and a C.R. button made by Stokes and Sons. Interestingly, the souvenir plate/ashtray was produced by the post 1962 version of the company, Stokes.
