A Liebig Trade card from the L’Australie series

This is one of 6 cards in one of the hundreds of sets of cards produced and distributed by the Liebig company, largely in Europe, to promote the sales of a meat extract paste manufactured by that company. The card depicts three images through “early European eyes”: the Blue Mountains, Sydney harbour, and an aboriginal hunter. The quality of the printing in this set, as is the case with numberous other Liebig sets around the turn of teh 20th Century, is very high.
