Hutton’s Hams and Bacon (Pine-Apple Brand)
During the 1860s the suburb of Preston in Melbourne’s north saw the introduction of a bacon-curing factory. Following its opening in 1862, came a tannery in 1865. These original establishments would be followed by several larger factories, including Hutton’s Hams and Bacons and Zwar’s Parkside Tannery.
Mel B. Spurr seen in this Hutton‘s poster, was a short plump pink-faced fellow with a jaunty comedian’s facade and an air of deceptive innocence, but he never left much of a mark on Australian history, but maybe it’s marketing tagline had greater success – “No, no, no, – I must have Hutton’s”.
However, I don’t eat meat, so Hutton’s Means Nuttin’ To Me
“Is It Art?”
