Trove Tuesday – Bush Valentine

It’s two days early but this week’s Trove Tuesday has a Valentine’s Day theme.  From the Illustrated Australian News  of February 21, 1883, comes “Bush Valentine”.  Valentine’s Day was not the postman’s favourite day of the year as his workload increased significantly but whether he came by horse or bicycle, his arrival caused great excitement.
