Swanston St 1861, by Henry Burn
Yuletide visit
Captain Cook Landing at Botany Bay
To the South there is a great land
The Star of Bethlehem
The subject of some of the cards might seem dated, especially those featuring the colonisation of Australia by the British.
The order form and cards were part of a scrapbook of Legacy material, mostly promotional material, from the 1960s to 1990s.
