    Periodontal panic took over prior to an event last week that cost me a smallish fortune. Thankfully I live in the city and relief is close by.

    A century ago Maude Lankester lived in Ettamogah outside Albury, a border town 343 miles / 552 km from Sydney. This card tells something of the help available in country towns far from the city centres in those days.

    It looks quite civilised!

    (It must be pre World War I because of the reference to Germanton, see below.)

    Title: HIGH CLASS WORK. PAINLESS OPERATIONS

    A.E Wood & J. B. Wood
    (Principals and Assistants)
    Dean Street, Albury

    Photographer: W. H. Oakley, Dean Street, Albury. Signed lower right.
    Publisher: unknown
    Year: c.1914
    Size: 14.1cm x 9cm (5½" x 3½")
    Description: black and white card with portraits of seven people in oval frames used as an advertisement for dental services in country New South Wales.

    On the rear of the card there is a stylised version of the firm’s name:
    "Alfred E. Wood & J. B. Wood Dentists, Dean St, Albury Visit Regularly:-"
    and below it another space for reminders about services and space for dates in six outlying areas north of Albury:

    Germanton
    Henty
    Culcairn
    Lockhart
    Urana
    Howlong

    Germanton aka Holbrook is 38 miles 61km NE of Albury.
    Henty is 42 miles 67 km N of Albury
    Culcairn is 31 miles 50 km N of Albury
    Lockhart is 85 miles 137 km NNW of Albury
    Urana is 77 miles 125 km NW of Albury
    Howlong is 18 miles 30 km W of Albury

    Materials: Paper, Ink.

    Associated place:
    Germanton “was originally called Ten Mile Creek and the first buildings erected in 1836. A German immigrant, John Christopher Pabst, became the publican of the Woolpack Hotel on 29 July 1840 and the area became known as "the Germans". By 1858 the name had evolved into the official name of Germanton, though the postal area retained the name Ten Mile Creek. In 1876 the name Germanton was gazetted and the old name Ten Mile Creek consigned to history.
    Ten Mile Creek Post Office opened on 1 January 1857, and was renamed Germanton in 1875. During World War I, the town name was deemed unpatriotic, so on 24 August 1915 the town was renamed Holbrook in honour of Lt. Norman Douglas Holbrook, a decorated wartime submarine captain and winner of the Victoria Cross. Lt. Holbrook commanded the submarine HMS B11”

      the men in this photo are my great-grandfather and his brother and sons (top left is my grandfather. The lady in the photo is my grandmother, nice find.
    46. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Hi AUSSIECOOK !!!!

      Great to hear from you !!!!

      Still think this is really cool us of the postcard medium !!!!!
    47. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      By the way AUSSIECOOK could you add their names here for me please?
      Do you have any ideas about the identity of the others ???
    48. aussiecook, 5 years ago
      I am not sure of the order of the people except that top left is my grandfather
      Walter Powell Wood who married Fanny Ethyl Wood.
      The others are James Henry Wood, William Arthur Wood, Alfred Ernest Wood, Francis Charles Wood, John Beauchamp Wood and Ivor LLewellyn Wood. My initial comment was incorrect, these are seven brothers and not my GGF and his brother.
    49. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Many thanks for the clarification and the identities .... Much appreciated !!!!
    50. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
