It’s two days early but this week’s Trove Tuesday has a Valentine’s Day theme. From the Illustrated Australian News of 21 February 1883, comes “Bush Valentine”. Valentine’s Day was not the postman’s favourite day of the year as his workload increased significantly but whether he came by horse or bicycle, his arrival caused great excitement.
One thought on “Trove Tuesday – Bush Valentine”
I must admit that I’m surprised that Valentine’s Day wqs celebrated in Oz all those years ago…perhaps it later went out of fashion.
