Early New Norfolk in colour

Click on image to enlarge
THIS rare colour view of New Norfolk in the late 19th or early 20th century is the latest piece of local history being offered for sale on eBay.

The online auction for this postcard showing an almost empty Montagu St/Glenora Rd area closes later this afternoon. The foreground, now Sharland Avenue, is all farmland. In the middle distance is the grand home of the Shoobridge family, then called Corumbene, which is now St Brigid's School.

Bidding started at $5.99 and at the time of writing had reached $21 with just under four hours to go. The eBay listing can be seen here.
