This is the second of three special Christmas editions of the Postcards from Australia series of posts I ran earlier in the year.
This postcard was sent by William Joseph Henry BATEMAN and his family in Australia to his dad back home in England to wish him Season’s Greetings for Christmas 1912.
Although the picture is not really what we would call a Christmas scene, I do like the little verse:
As a token sweet
Accept this golden wheat,
Produced on Austral soil
After many months of toil.
The grains of wheat have vanished, they probably fell out years ago, but I do wonder if someone might have tried to grow them at some time!
