Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series comprises an album containing postcards and photographs sent by clerical staff of the Hospital for the Insane, Kew (VA 2840) whilst on leave. Most items depict locations within Victoria. Several items show other Australian or overseas locations, the latter sent by staff members on active service with the First AIF. Individual items within the album are postmarked between the years 1910 and 1928.

    Also found within the album is a loose leaf sheet dated 20 August 1913 which 'formalises' the arrangement of sending cards for inclusion in the album. This sheet was signed by the clerical staff of the time and some subsequent staff members to 1939.

    The volume was sent to PRO in November 1992 by the Museum of Victoria which in turn had acquired it in undisclosed circumstances.
