Local History: Something to write home about…

The original image from the 1984 article

In 1984, the Library’s Local History Service released a series of postcards based on our extensive Local History photograph collection.  The photos, taken in the late 19th century, depict significant buildings and locations in Tea Tree Gully.

In November of that year the postcards  featured in an article in  the North East Leader Messenger highlighting that the postcards had became so popular that they became available to the public to purchase.

How many of you received one of these postcards or perhaps even purchased one yourself? Would you like to see us release postcards like these in the future?
