I really love those antique Australian advertisement Trade Mark labels, since you can easily trace these old companies in Google and find who were they and even to see sometimes that they are no longer exist... These ones are probably Japanese labels

Hobart is the capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania

Brownells established Hobart’s first department store in 1888 in Liverpool Street, and it became a public company in 1902. It offered a successful mail-order service from inception, and in 1912, it introduced a unique and free service for remote female customers: Brownell's Famous Lady Shopper, known as Aunt Edna. Naturally most of the shopping was done in-house, but Aunt Edna also undertook other commissions and purchased outside goods, which she dispatched with one of her much-prized 'homely, womanly, and sympathetic' letters.
Remodelled in the 1950s using the latest American techniques, Brownells became Tasmania's largest departmental store. It was taken over by Myer in 1959.
