When no one was looking, Philip would sneak a taste of his Perkins Paste
It is amazing the stories that are triggered by what seems like an insignificant object.
If you went to school in Australia between 1934 and the 80’s Perkins Paste was the glue you turned to for that classroom snack. As iconic as Vegemite, in its stunning fuchsia plastic tub, this was the only glue you could have on your desk and in your pencil case.
When the lid popped off it revealed the plastic spatula that helped spread the thick solid white paste made from boiled potato dextrin across your school project.
The smell was unforgettable.
