Lighthouse welcome

Just found in the National Library picture collection: a stereo photo of a welcome arch built in Hobart for the 1901 visit of the Duke and Duchess of York. This little object tickles my interest in stereo views, lighthouses, and celebratory arches.

Enjoy the fabulous collection of historic circus ephemera at circusmuseum.nl. There are thousands of colour lithographic posters from the Hamburg printing firm of Adolph Friedländer, each one catalogued, digitised, and available on the web. The website nicely explains, in Dutch and in English, the provenance of the collection.

Untitled poster, printed by Adolph Friedländer in 1926.

Among the thousands of European items there are a few with Australian connections, including posters for the Ashtons and Bullens troupes.

Poster for Great and Good: the Australian bumpity bump, printed by Adolph Friedländer in 1909.
