The Boarding House Series of Postcards

This series of postcards from Grandad’s collection  reflect the humour of the creator of the cards I think.  The “funny” side to the cards can be seen quite plainly in “The Moonlight Flit (running off without paying your rent), “The Breakfast Bell” (multiple ways to wake someone up) and “The Knockout Blow”.   I’m not sure if the black ink comments that have been written on the front of the postcards has been written by Grandad, or by the person that may have sent the cards to him.  None of the cards have writing on the back of them, although the publisher of the cards is Prebble & Moad, 11 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne.

The cards do show the sense of humour from yesteryear, which is vastly different from what would be found as entertaining today.
