The Milk Bars Book

“Eamon has a knack for capturing moments of Australian life like few others. Our past needs to be valued, documented and celebrated. The simplicity of the Milk Bar experience, a cherished memory of our childhoods, is one that should be elevated to a higher plane. Get behind this. I certainly am.”
Tim "Rosso" Ross, Australian Comedian, writer, radio host, social commentator and design nerd.

The Milk Bar, you might not know, was invented in Australia. It was originally based on the American Soda Bars with the idea being brought back to Australia by a Greek born Sydney entrepreneur of the name of Joachim Tavlaridis or ‘Mick Adams.’ He brought the idea of Soda Bars to Sydney and in 1932, opened the Black & White 4d Milk Bar. Instead of sodas he sold milkshakes, thus calling his business a “Milk-Bar”. What became of the original Milk Bars that Adams invented is a rich a layered story with many reinventions and incantations over the past 75 years, this book is a document of the last of the Milk Bars across Australia, who in their hey-day were one of the most successful small businesses this country had seen.
