We’ve often thought about making glass googie eggs, if only as a sweet bread’n’butter Easter production line – so it was nice to stumble across these engagingly ‘pop’ Dennis Chamberlain cuties…









We also rather like his Spires…

What a tremendous innings, what a truly great bloke.





Merv Bishop’s fabulous photograph (above) of that seminal moment – Prime Minister Gough Whitlam pouring soil into the hands of traditional land owner Vincent Lingiari, Northern Territory in 1975. (Shame that the flame has been all but extinguished by subsequent governments…)

You’ll always loom large, comrade.
