I was going to write something about Vi Greenhalf who I was reminded of when I was writing about Dame Zara Bate. They had a similar stature and their hair styles were vaguely similar too.
But it is not going to much of a post as the internet provided almost nothing about Vi except for a YT clip. You can see her at about 2.20 in the clip.
I could say she was usually well corseted but R reminded me that she also used to wear caftans, presumably uncorseted. Actually R said muumuus, but I don't remember her in a muumuu. Mother wore mu mus and they were quite revealing. I can't imagine Vi in one.
In my memory Vi hosted a morning tv show, of the type that can probably be seen now on your tv should you be that way inclined to watch morning television (steady Andrew. You are sounding snobby). The show was called Time for Terry and I can just remember it. She also had her own morning? show called Vi's Pad.
I recall Vi's voice very clearly and it had harsh and gravelly tone to it. Clear yes, broad, not particularly. Her husband owned the up market restaurant in William Street in the city known as The Walnut Tree.
Vi was a quite important person in Melbourne and it is a pity more is not about her online. I last saw her in Hawksburn loading her groceries into her very small car and then heaving her considerably proportioned self into the driver's seat. I suppose she died sometime in the nineties.
