Overseas Dominions Australia 1915 (C.C.S reprint 2003)
Wills Reprinted Series Overseas Dominions Australia 1915 (C.C.S reprint 2003) Overseas Dominions Australia 1915 (C.C.S reprint 2003) 50 - I am sure that many of these subjects would be unrecognisable to modern day Australians and nor would they take kindly to being listed as a dominion, but that said this is a charming little set which tries to give a flavour of the vast and varied country. The views of Sydney look very different without the usual Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, neither of which were built in 1915 when the set was originally issued. Some of the other views such as the Blue Mountains, The Devil’s Coach House and Cape Pillar are unchanged, but I am guessing that horse (or oxen) and carts are no longer used for harvesting wheat and collecting pineapples, logs, wool or sugar cane. Also whilst kangaroo are still sometimes hunted I doubt this is done on horseback with dogs and I do hope that the catching of turtles for their shells and food has long since ceased. The last card deals which something which sadly has not stopped – the threat of a bush fire – which is still a problem today. A lovely set size 68 x 36mm

Wills Reprinted Series Overseas Dominions Canada 1914 (C.C.S. reprint 2002) Overseas Dominions Canada 1914 (C.C.S. reprint 2002) 50 - Originally produced in 1914 these cards show the major Canadian industries of the time such as logging, farming, fishing and producing maple syrup as well as major cities, beautiful views, buildings ranging from humble backwoods cabins to government offices and even a picture of an ice-boat sailing on the frozen St. Lawrence River. I am sure much of the stunning countryside including the Rockies has hardly changed, but interestingly even in 1914 the cards described the Rockies as being largely unexplored and mapped. The numbered backs are full of fascinating information and these interesting and colourful cards are worth a place in anyone’s collection. Size 68 x 36mm. \r\n
