The Ross Edmonds Cabinet Card Collection

Ross Edmonds Collection – Unidentified Mother and Child (

These images are scans of a collection of cabinet cards (also known as post cards) from Ross Edmonds of Newcastle, New South Wales. The collection was loaned to Cultural Collections for digitisation in September 2019. We thank Ross Edmonds for allowing us to share his collection with the wider community.

The post card collection contains portraits of people and family groups from various photography studios around the world. The reverse side (verso) of most of the post cards have also been scanned.

  1. I believe that the “portrait of a man (in a clerical collar) by Moss” is Bishop Tyrrell
