New Caledonia 1904 – 1905

Here are some more of the beautiful black and white postcards of New Caledonia that are amongst my Grandad’s Collection (Edward Thomas Bailey).  There is a family connection to New Caledonia between Edwards wife Ines Maude nee: Smith, and Ines’s cousins Madeleine, Raymond  and Henri Thevenet.  I believe that my grandmother Ines Maude Smith made at least one trip to New Caledonia, perhaps even more, although I have no proof.  There are a number of postcards in the collection from “friends” which is why I thought Granma had spent some time there.
