Memories of sending postcards when you were on holidays.
I recently went on holidays and while away I found some interesting old postcards in an op shop. The postcards reminded me of going on holidays years ago and making sure I bought some postcards to post back to family and friends while I was away.
The first postcard is of the Flinders Street Station corner in Melbourne from the late 1960s I think. The twin towers of Victorian Gas in the background and Central Station on the opposite corner are no longer there but are replaced by Federal Square. I moved to Melbourne when I left school to work in an office so I remember this corner as I would catch a train every day to and from work. The second postcard is from the late 1970s and features a Melbourne tram.
Some of the postcards I found had a long letter on the back that filled the postcard with small writing. My notes to family and friends on the back of a postcard was usually like the second postcard above with a short note about the holiday.
