Images of Deniliquin

August 9 2017

At one time, tourists could pick up a postcard that looked like an envelope and send to their friends and loved ones a series of printed images of Deniliquin.

We are very pleased to be able to show you some of the images from the postcard series, we do apologize if some images appear wonky but that is due to all images being attached to each other limiting the ability to straighten them up.

The back where you can seal it all up and post the lot off.

As you have seen, Deniliquin has changed quite a lot since these pictures were taken, we have a different bridge, the Tattersall’s Hotel and Royal Hotel (end of picture 7) are gone, the War Memorial is different now and there are different shops, different cars and another place to swim now too.

We hope you have enjoyed taking a look at these images and hope that they have brought back memories or have brought interest and curiosity to what was and what will be coming in the future.
