Early in the twentieth century the postcard was a common form of distance communication between people. In the cities and major towns, Monday to Friday mail deliveries occurred twice a day, once in the morning and another in the afternoon. There was also a morning delivery on Saturday. There was a mail train everyday in all directions all over the state of NSW so that all areas were covered, with postal workers actually on the train sorting the mail. It provided a fast and reliable service.
An album of postcards sent mostly to Harry and Flo Collins was found in the effects of their daughter Dot O'Neil and they are reproduced here to preserve them. Follow the links for the various groupings.
