This postcard is dated 8-6-1906. Trafalgar looking west, towards Melbourne.
|Darren French and friends came up with the following: a link to the State Library postcard is here.
Working on the assumption that it’s a view looking easterly (smoke from chimney is blowing to the left and there is snow on the ground snow only falls when the wind is from the south-westerly aspect) and the advice that it was thought to be in the Eastern parts of the state [the clearing in the forest supported that view], I checked all stations that had a level crossing at the Dn end folowed by at least half-a-mile of flattish ground and narrowed it down to Trafalgar. Here’s the SLV’s version of a slightly colourised post card. I gather 1906 was a cold year indeed Ballarat seems to have had snow on New Year’s Day.
