tuesday 26th february

John Dowson’s Swan River Postcards takes a journey down the Swan River, from Guildford to Fremantle, using old postcards to show the history of the river's use. It is both a history of the water-way and a history of the postcard as a form of communication.

Like the river, this volume is a multifaceted gem and is a travel lyceum not to be missed.
