Just spent a couple of days in Gippsland and managed to collect 2 groups of items.  One was some cards of 1960s-80s cards of buttons from various Op-shops.  The other was photos of mail boxes… no I’m not mad… just have a look and a laugh.

    I have a part button card with two buttons attached on the back of the card it says, “Boilproof buttons are the finest in Australia from the finest quality raw materials.
    Boilproof buttons have been Plant Tested and approved by the Federal Council of Drycleaners of Australia.
    They also hold the endorsement of the National Institute of Drycleaning of Australia.
    I am hoping that a year of production can be identified.
    I have well in excess of 3,000 plus buttons that I have had for 30 to 35 years and have only just started to research them as there are some awesome buttons amongst them.
    I am ever so pleased the I found this page and this occurred whilst I was looking for the Federal Council of Drycleaners. Many Thanks for such an awesome page.

      These Boilproof buttons were probably made in the early 1950’s. It turns out that they are a Woolworths line of buttons.
