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. Does anyone know?

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 (Aust).
