T-shirts spread­ing the word

Lon­don, Paris ... and Rocky

RON Neu­mann of­ten won­dered why peo­ple wore Tshirts pro­mot­ing New York, Brook­lyn or other no­table cities that we might or might not have ever vis­ited.

That thought led him to visit the Rock­hamp­ton air­port a few years ago to pur­chase a Rock­hamp­ton T-shirt be­cause he was proud to be as­so­ci­ated with such a great city.

Since then he has dab­bled with var­i­ous graphic ar­range­ments to cap­ture some unique at­tributes of Rocky on a shirt.

“I’ve met the oc­ca­sional knocker over the years but I reckon Rock­hamp­ton is a great pace to live for var­i­ous rea­sons,” he said.

“Rock­hamp­ton de­serves to have a de­cent set of T-shirts that in­di­cate to the world we are as good a des­ti­na­tion as any­where in the world.

“I hope ‘The Capricorn Line’ of ap­parel helps that jour­ney.”

Mr Neu­mann said the pur­chaser of a Rocky T-shirt would also re­ceive a his­tor­i­cal sum­mary of Rock­hamp­ton.

“I con­tacted the Darum­bal En­ter­prises to look over the word­ing to en­sure re­spect has not been breached and that the tra­di­tional care­tak­ers of this re­gion con­tinue to be ac­knowl­edged,” he said.

“Any­one who pur­chases a Tshirt is en­cour­aged to send in a pic­ture of them­selves wear­ing the T-shirt, so the theme of pride in our city may de­velop.”
