Reception this way: motels – a sentimental journey with Tim Ross

Travel around Australia revisiting your memories of the classic Aussie motel, from family holidays and long road trips to continental breakfasts and mid-century mod-cons.

In a land where the car has provided us with the ultimate freedom to hit the road and explore, it is no surprise that Australians wholeheartedly embraced the American concept of the motel. When motels began springing up in the 1950s, they represented a new, stylish and sophisticated way to travel.

Join National Archives and Tim Ross on a driving holiday through the quintessential Australian experience of staying in a motel. And find out why these images are part of the National Archives’ collection.

We are proud to be part of the print, fabrication and installation of this exhibition.

THE MARVELLOUS CORRICKS @ NFSA

CHECK OUR LATEST PROJECT @ NFSA!

HAVE YOU HEARD OF THE MARVELLOUS CORRICKS?

They were a family of entertainers that delighted Australian audiences with music, comedy and film in the early 20th century.

Albert Corrick taught his children to dance, sing and play piano, violin, cello, viola, flute, piccolo, clarinet, saxophone, cornet, french horn and the organ!

Vaudeville-style entertainers, the Corrick family toured extensively through New Zealand and Australia in the early 1900s.

At the start of the tour they carried a suitcase each. By the end they were transporting 7 tonnes of equipment!

The Marvellous Corrick family took their performances to the world’s stage in 1907; the tour included South Asia and Europe.

While the family wrapped up their show in 1916, their love of entertainment lives on in the NFSA and The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery collections.

The Ink in the Lines Exhibition at AWM

Tattoos are a conversation starter.

Many members and veterans of the Australian Defence Forces have tattoos, and while their reasons for getting tattooed are as varied as the people themselves, self-expression and belonging play a part.

They also share a common purpose in getting inked: to remember.

Inscribed on skin are their identities as veterans, the commemoration of loss, experiences of trauma and overcoming adversity, the bonds of family and friends, and acknowledging the experiences that make us who we are.

Ink in the Lines features more than 70 portraits and details the experiences of 21 Australian servicemen and servicewomen.

It is thought to be the first exhibition in Australia to examine the use of tattoos in the military.

The Ink in the Lines exhibition is on display at the Australian War Memorial 25 September 2020 to 27 January 2021

We are proud to be part of the print, fabrication and installation of this great exhibition.

Sverre Kaaten Nordic Shelter

Sverre Kaaten Nordic Shelter was built by volunteers in 1980 and continues supply cross country skiers with a beautiful place to come in and get warm and dry … among many other things.
