When the lights go on

Printed fabric

This piece of fabric was part of the bedspread Avis made from offcuts of her designs done at STP (Silk and Textile Printers). The design was one of the Victory Loan Fabrics, its title written on the fabric "When the Lights go on", speaks of a time when the War and the Blackouts are over and it is party time again. A globe with Australia (and New Zealand) at it's centre is depicted along with skyscapers and the Sydney Harbour bridge.
