Description

A photographic postcard addressed to May Mortlock from Percy Condon, no date:
"Dear May, Just a PC. according to promise; We have possession of New Lawn; shifting in today. I came out yesterday, am taking furniture in today. How do you like the P.C. Ella had a p.c. from Maudie last Tuesday. Something good to tell you about what happened last Sunday. I think poor old me will be on my own for a day or two, till Mrs Jack Lawton comes up. Did you get the p.c. from Barney yet. I didn't find him Sunday night don't know how he got on. I might be out here for the dance Friday night. If so I will be in early. I've been in Wagga every day this week yet; it is all right living out near Wagga. I will close with love and kisses. From Percy."
The postcard shows an image of two horses pulling a binder. A binder was for binding sheaves together. It is currently shown in "transport mode" - the horses would be shifted 90 degrees to the man's left for it to be operation.
