The following postcards were sent by family and friends 

  • travelling abroad and in Australia
  • as Christmas, New Year and birthday cards

to members of the

  • Foxton family living at The Priory, Indooroopilly, Brisbane 

  • Hooper family, either at a Creek Street Brisbane business address, or to a home address at Fernberg Road, Milton, Brisbane, or to a Cornhill, London address.

Interestingly, many postcards sent from within Australia do not depict their address of posting. Apparently, postcards were collected or purchased for future correspondence use.

The main recipients were
  • Colonel Justin Fox Greenlaw Foxton
  • Mrs. Emily Foxton (née Panton)
  • Miss Mildred Foxton
  • Mr. Claude Gilson Foxton
  • Mr. TB Hooper and Misses Kathleen and Jean Hooper (family friends)
