Bribie postcards 1970s

Bribie Island
Postcard folder circa 1970

BIHS has recently recorded in our historical database, a folder of 6 postcards entitled simply Bribie Island Qld.

The folder was produced by Murray Views, Gympie around the year 1970.

Each postcard has a caption which describes the location of the picture as it was around 1970.  So not only can we see familiar island vistas as they were almost 45 years ago - we can also read what they were called at the time!
