Alison Spence grew up in Geelong, and to break up the bike ride home from school she’d stop at the Fairey St milk bar for a Sunnyboy, Big M and mixed lollies while pawing over the latest Smash Hits magazine, but never actually bought a copy.
Noticing milk bars disappearing from the urban landscape, she started documenting the corner stores. Now based in Canberra, Alison sees milk bars as just as important to our social history as more grand, stately buildings.
We couldn’t agree more.
