Old Postcards from Newcastle

My Grandfather and Grandmother collected postcards from everywhere, and of anything, but there a a couple of “sets” of postcards.

One such set is of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, and has 11 individual cards. None of the Cards have been used for correspondence, and they are all in excellent condition, although they are a little discoloured.

Our family has a rich past in it’s connection with Newcastle, with many family members either making their homes there or visiting the area frequently.

These postcards show Newcastle in a different era, a time when the pace of life was just a little slower, and far less complicated.
