Camera Views Bribie about 1948

Camera Views of Bribie Island 
circa 1948

One of the items we have recorded in our historical database is a folder of 8 postcards with the title of Camera Views - Bribie Island.

The postcards were probably produced by Murray Views, Gympie, Queensland around the year 1948.  Some of the same scenes, in black and white, appeared in Souvenir of Bribie postcard folder the previous year.

Each postcard has a caption which describes the location of the picture as it was around 1948.  So not only can we see familiar island vistas as they were almost 70 years ago - we can also read what they were called at that time!
