Thursday August 11 2011 in The Age page 22 there is an article entitled Devotees keep TAA legacy aloft. Carol Webb writes about a band of volunteers made up of ex-TAA staff who have collected together 200,000 items since the first TAA flight, September 9th 1946, until 1986 when the airline merged with Australian Airlines. You can see how the TAA airline buttons changed from the conventional style civil uniform buttons to the trendy nylon buttons of the seventies.
This curious museum is well worth a visit to find our more about your buttons, and to help date your buttons.
The TAA Museum is at 7 York Street, Airport West.
Open Tuesday-Thursday 10.00 a.m.-2.30 p.m.
