Greetings from Ballarat

This is another "novelty card" where the postman's bag opens up to reveal folded black and white reproductions of Ballarat. I assume that many of these cards are first manufactured in England or at least taken from English designs and then regionalised accordingly, but it is funny that my image of Ballarat could not be further than the British looking Postman in an urban English setting.

Dear Ethel
Left Melbourne for Ballarat 8'0clock this morning and arrived safely after a pleasant journey of 3 hours. Intend staying here for 2 days and then return to Melbourne. Will leave again next thursday for Sydney. Bell and I are in good spirits and enjoying ourselves thoroughly
