This thin card peep show is an example of the Phar Lap related merchandise sold in the Museum of Victoria shop in the 1980s. It was sold as a kit to be assembled at home.

The peep show was designed by David Lancashire, written by Garrie Hutchinson and illustrated by Fay Planka for the Museum of Victoria, as part of the merchandise for the SIO Great Exhibition of Victoria in 1985.
