Retro Melbourne is a pictorial feast of rare images of the city, suburbs and country centres taken by photographer Fred Mitchell in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s. There’s so many evocative photographs of these decades including thse of the Tallangatta cattle sales, in 1949 when most of the men wore fedoras, a Rag and Bones man and his horse in Brunswick, Gregory Peck filming On The Beach in 1959, in Melbourne, and the Moomba festival in the 1970s, while those Melbourne Cup’ fashions of the fifties, were truly something to behold.
