See for yourself …c. 1949

by Henry Rousel (1865–1929)


Henry Rousel was a Sydney-based sign-writer. Working as H Rousel, Signwriter Company, he expanded into screen-printing and paintings for hotels to promote breweries. The local council used this Rousel design in a tourist campaign. The Blue Mountains has long been a tourist destination for Sydneysiders with the waratah being one of its many attractions.
