City of Sydney Historical Association present: Sydney Postcards: History through the Mail

Join Robert Mills as he discusses the changing faces of Sydney throughout the years from his vast collection of postcards. One hundred years ago the postcard was a prime means of communicating with friends and business associates. Multiple mail deliveries per day ensured that messages sent in the am would be delivered in the pm (same day). Cards were also often produced for business use and advertised all manner of activities and products. Maps also appeared on cards. Often the only communication with family members from home, the cards that remain tell history as it happened, on the other side of the world.

When: Saturday 11 August 2018, at 2pm
Where: Sydney Mechanics School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, NSW Sydney 2000
