The postcard was made on cardboard manufactured by Kodak Australia.
The photograph on the postcard is of the Salvation Army Women’s Hostel in Angas Street, Adelaide (South Australia), which was opened on 1 March 1922. The website of the State Library of South Australia includes a very similar photograph, taken from a slightly different angle, which is dated 1922.
See: 1) “Angas Street, Adelaide [B 830]: Photograph”, State Library of South Australia [photo of the same building]
2) “Progressive Salvation Army”, The Observer (Adelaide, SA), 11 March 1922, p. 23 [photo of the same building]
Austral = of or relating to Australia or Australasia; Australian, Australasian; an abbreviation of Australia, Australian, Australasia, Australasian; in a wider context, of or relating to the southern hemisphere; southern, especially a southern wind
The stonework in the adjoining buildings made me wonder if it might be from Victoria or South Australia.
An internet image search found it — in Adelaide.
Here is a hyperlink to another photo of it, seemingly taken around the same time era:
It is from the State Library of South Australia; and is titled: “Angas Street, Adelaide …”.
A subsequent internet search for “the salvation army women’s hospital” adelaide; brought up several more, different photos of the same building, also at the State Library of Sth. Aust.; and others related to development of the site.
That’s a great find. Thank you very much!
The information re the building being in Angas Street, Adelaide, has been added to the post.
