A float for the Postmaster-General's Department in the 1956
Moomba parade. Founded in 1901, the Department looked after all telecommunications
and post until 1975, when it was split into Telecom and Australia Post.
Telecom made a big splash when it launched its mobile network, creatively dubbed 'MobileNet', in the 1980s, sending skydivers down over the Opera House and recruiting plenty of men in Lycra (one of whom appears to be modelling the popular '80s fashion of 'calculater on the chest').
