Information Sources


This series contains material collected and created by the Lithographic Section in the Survey Office while drafting Departmental and Ministerial Christmas and New Year greeting cards. It appears that sketches, cut-outs, negatives and other material were used to draft mock-ups.

Copies of the final cards are included for many years between 1908 and 1972. Most of the greeting cards in this series are for the Survey Office and / or the Minister for Lands. A few examples of cards from other Departments are included, such as the Public Instruction Department, Primary Industries Department, the Darling Downs Infantry, the Minister for Health and Home Affairs, and Governor Sir Leslie and Lady Wilson. Most of the cards are blank, but a few contain annotations.

Some cards have also been arranged on mountable display boards. Of particular note is the board for the card created in 1919, which shows the image at various stages in the colouring process.
