The Victorian Archives Centre plays host to regular displays of original records from our collection as well as touring exhibitions about Victorian stories.
Wish You Were Here
9 December – 28 February
Since the early 1900s, Geelong’s picture postcards have provided an insight into the personal stories of its people and the pride of a developing city.
From the bronze figure of farmer and son striking the bell in the T & G Clock Tower, to a cyclist approaching the gas lamp roundabout in Malop Street, Wish You Were Here depicts a diverse range of activities, where blank canvasses and brief messages reveal intimate details of a growing Geelong.
The exhibition from the National Wool Museum, Geelong highlights yesteryear in a vibrant showcase of picture postcards from the collections from Geelong Heritage Centre, Queenscliff Maritime Museum and private collections.
Visitors will also see postcards from Public Record Office Victoria’s collection.
