Ladies in Black is set in Sydney in the summer of 1959, against the backdrop of Australia's cultural awakening, breakdown of class structures, and liberation of women. It tells the coming-of-age story of suburban schoolgirl Lisa, who while waiting for her final high school exam results with dreams of going to the University of Sydney, takes a summer job at a large department store. Here she works side-by-side with a group of saleswomen who open her eyes to a world beyond her sheltered existence, and foster her metamorphosis.

On the counter at the Goodes Department Store, the 1950s/60s/70s cash register appears to be the NCR 100-146 cash register. Incorrectly the cash register is the post-decimal version, that was seen all over Australia from 14th February 1966 when Australia changed the currency to Australian dollars and cents, from Australian pounds shillings and pence. Mechanical, manually operated, built like a tank, and guaranteed to strengthen the muscles in most shopkeeper's fingers. See more »

'Ladies in Black' was a wonderful and nostalgic movie especially when one has lived through those days. I was a teenager working in Sydney in 1959, my mother was a Lady in Black, she worked at Mark Foy's in the lace department for many years. The movie brought back all the memories of those days, Hyde Park, Sydney Harbour, the Blue Mountains, the trams and the new double decker busses. The days when retail shops actually served people, not like today when you have stand in line at a check out. I loved the fashions and the way the social issues of the day were delicately spoken of. Did it really matter if the race horses were not actually of that day it was such a small part of the movie. I think the makers of the film really made a great movie of that time and I take my hat off to all concerned in making of this wonderful film. Well done. J.E.M.
