C.1910 SCARCE POSTCARD MOTOR BIKE REG. NUMBER BP 20. X4
We have on offer an original 1910 transport postcard of a very early motor bike.
We havebeen mostfortunate inthat we have successfullypurchased a very large ORIGINAL photographic collection, mostly mounted on larger format board & in real photographic postcard form, of mainly South Australian & interstate colonial up to the 1940’s period. This magnificent collection ( have waited for nearly 10 years to privately acquire this collection) covers a vast range of genresincludingADVERTISING & BUSINESSES, SOCIAL HISTORY, AGRICULTURAL & INDUSTRIAL, TRANSPORT, MILITARY, SHIPPING & MARINE, ARCHITECTURE, TOPOGRAPHICAL, MEDICAL & SCIENTIFIC, ETHNOGRAPHIC & the NATURAL WORLD etc etc.
Early colonial images are now becoming quite hard to acquire/access as collectors, businesses, historical groups & museums, academic institutions, authors & journalists snap them up. Many are being acquired in order to scan them at high resolution for sale to the public. ….. just check the number of eBayers & dealers at antiques & collectors fairs currently selling digital scans, many at quite astronomically high prices.Such items are becoming evermore appreciated for theirhistorical significance and their window into our social history. Australia is a young country with many of these early images and photographs still not always fully appreciated for their social, cultural and economic significance.
