Views from the hills: Rose Series post cards.

The Rose Stereograph Co. produced a series of post cards of views of Victoria - they are a great source of historical images  for the local historian and many are available on the State Library of Victoria website In this post we will look at some of these post cards that show views from the hills. They were taken between circa 1920 and 1954.
