Greetings across the years
Before text messages, email or the telephone people kept in contact through postcards which could be mailed relatively cheaply and often reached the recipient by the next post.
Local Studies has a small collection of postcards featuring images of our area. The collection was built up with the advice and assistance of local historian Pam Liell, herself a collector of postcards. Pam has compiled two books of postcard images, Before the phone: 100 years of postcard messages (1998) and Messages from the war: postcards of World War I (1999) both of which are held in the Local Studies collection.
The early 1900s postcard above shows the Parramatta River near Yaralla which is just visible in the background, along with the Yaralla wharf which no longer exists.
