Card designed by Harriet Scott 1

Harriet Scott designed a set of twelve Australian-themed cards, published by Turner and Henderson in 1880. Her sister Helena designed a similar set the previous year - the first of their kind to be published. Harriet's initials appear on each card in the bottom right corner. Some of the cards included Christmas greetings on the front, but all were postcard formats.

These photos are of originals kindly loaned by Michael Aitken.
