Frances and Ned at Leura Falls, New South Wales, Australia, March 15, 1914
The handwritten message (see below) on the verso of this real photo postcard takes up the entire space on the back, and there is no address or stamp.

Marian, 15th March 1914

Dear Brother,

A few lines to let you know that we arrived home again after a splendid holiday. This photo is my son and daughter (Frances and Ned) taken at the foot of Leura falls, Blue Mountains, 60 odd miles west of Sydney. It is not a very good photo as it was a very rough place and we had to climb down steps for about 2000 feet below the surface. The climate there is like our old home in Ireland--they have snow falls very often--but it seems too cold for me to live there. It seemed nothing to see people with overcoats on morning and evenings. I now conclude by sending best respects from all to yourself, wife, and family.

From your loving sister,

Nora

Write soon.
