Résumé
Out of the Past presents 300 pocket-sized memories of the much-loved Adelaide Botanic Garden. Hand-coloured views of a well-known place - many views have now matured, been altered or have become lost. These beautiful postcards are from the Edwardian Era, a time of leisure, affluence and modernity. This period was also the time of the picture postcard - a new, speedy and efficient mode of communication. The images on the front of these postcards tell one story while the handwritten messages on the back provide a glimpse into everyday life from 100 years ago. During the course of 1901-1914 a postcard craze saw billions of postcards sent through the post offices of the globe. Out of the Past will take you back there.
