Might still have one of these toasters in the back of the kitchen cupboard. Carbon-dating suggests it may have belonged to Gordon Strang. Looking forward to further items of interest.
I burned my fingers on one regularly throughout the 1970s and 80s. Thanks for your support of the museum Vin!
I have a hecla toaster like the one pictures above, and I was curious to know its vintage and manufacture?
Made in Australia I am pretty sure but I don’t know how old. Can anyone else with greater depth of toaster knowledge help Marty?

I am sure this history would interest you! http://www.kindnesstrust.com/kindness-stories/23-museum-victoria-manufacturing-history
Thanks Joe, that was fascinating. I like to think that in its small way the Tasmanian Tigers Museum of Memorabilia and Toasters is also keeping alive that lost Australia of makers and doers.
