Historical information

The Kew Historical Society's postcard collection includes views of Kew, Melbourne and Greater Melbourne as well as those including overseas scenes sent or received from Europe or the Middle East. They date from the 1890s to the 2000s. These postcards may or may not include the name of the publisher or printer. A number of the cards were published as parts of popular series.

Physical description

Modern photographic postcard of the QPO Restaurant and the former Kew Court House. At the front of the restaurant is the Kew War Memorial, the drum of which at this stage was incorrectly painted a shade of green, which the Council later changed after representations from the Kew Historical Society and a heritage report.
