Holden Ute in the 1950's - Australia's Own
This watercolor tries to relive the Australia of 1957 or thereabouts when the second version of our own Holden ruled the roads and every town had a Holden Dealership. This building in Ross Tasmania is now a Second Hand Dealership and looks much as I have painted it .The Ute is much like the one my father owned as a Grocery Shop owner in Brisbane Queensland. At 17 I got my driver's licence in 1960 and did home deliveries for his customers.
