Product Description

Postcard 100th anniversary of Mt Field Nat Park

Limited to 100 only. Numbered 1 – 100,

NOTE: Numbers 1 and 100 will be auctioned at the Awards Dinner

In 1916, the area surrounding Mt Field, about 64 Km from Hobart, was declared a National Park, making it Tasmania’s first National Park.
Russell Falls within the Park had already been proclaimed as a Nature Reserve in 1885 due to its natural beauty.
Tasmania issued a set of 8 “Pictorial” stamps in 1899 and 1900, the 4d value showing Russell Falls. The image used for the stamp is based on a photo by J W Beattie.
This card shows a J W Beattie Photograph in the form of a hand-coloured picture postcard with an image very similar to that used for the 4d stamp.
