Beer by lamp light

Perth, Western Australia had major electricity loss following a breakdown at the East Perth power house in May 1946. Householders received only intermittent electricity supplies, while there was no general supplies for city shops and businesses for days.

“A city barman perches a lantern on the casing of a beer tap, pulls beer for shadowy customers (background)”.

– The Daily News (Perth, Western Australia), Friday 24 May 1946


If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
