Physical description

A colour postcard featuring a kookaburra shape cut out of fabric and painted to resemble plumage. On the right hand side is a poem which reads in part "KIND THOUGHTS. / Oh! ye strange wild bird, will ye bear a Greeting / To the Folk that live in the "Way beyond"? / Tell them "That Love and Health are beyond confessing / As the only joys that are worth possessing."
