Retreat Hotel, Abbotsford Colour Print
Harper and Charlie's colour print of the Retreat Hotel, Abbotsford is printed on premium grade Ilford 180 gsm matte paper with commercial grade pigment inks.
This pub had a bit of a brush with fame in the 1970s when the very popular soap opera/ drama series ‘The Sullivans’ was filmed there when they needed front bar/ pub scenes. The beautiful 1940’s front bar/ interior was (and still is) almost entirely original and intact making it perfect for the drama series, set during World War 2.
Sadly, pubs like this, with their restored/ retained original interiors are so few and far between in Melbourne these days, luckily this one survived.
The distinctive look of Harper and Charlie’s art is inspired by vintage printmaking techniques, such as the use of coarse halftone screens, slipped registrations, colour bleed, scuffs and scratches etc which add to the look and feel of each design. Please note these elements have been applied to the art on purpose and are not printing defects in the final design.
The total print size as specified in the product listing includes the shown border around the design as part of the finished image. Please note, the width of the border on each design varies with each print size.
Prints or stationery items that are A4 size or less will be supplied carefully packaged and sent in a flat pack. Larger size prints will be rolled up in a protective layer of paper and packaged and sent in heavy gauge postage tubes.
