Picturesque Bribie about 1952

A Souvenir of Picturesque Bribie Island
circa 1952

BIHS has recently recorded in our historical database, a folder of 12 postcards entitled A Souvenir of Picturesque Bribie Island.

The folder was published by Sydney G. Hughes, 4th Floor, Invicta House, Edward St., Brisbane, in conjunction with Nucolorvue Productions around the year 1952.

Each postcard has a caption which describes the location of the picture as it was around 1952.  So not only can we see familiar island vistas as they were almost 65 years ago - we can also read what they were called at the time!
