Postcards: Every Picture Tells a Story

October 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Written communication in the form of postcards is no longer fashionable in the age of computer communications.  However, 100 years ago, the postcard was a prime means of communicating with friends and business associates.

Multiple mail deliveries per day ensured that messages sent in the morning would be delivered later on the same day.

Cards were also often produced for business use and advertised all manner of activities and products.

Postcards offer unique insights into the past as they give a visual component, often a written message and a date stamp – perfect for historical research.

Robert Mill will be our guest speaker.  He has been collecting cards for many years and finds the hobby most rewarding.  He has been a member of the NSW Postcard Collectors Society since the 1980s.thumbnail of 10 – Mills
