2008 Post Master Gallery Exhibition

The Post Master Gallery was located in Melbourne. It housed the Australian Philatelic collection and periodically held exhibitions related to stamps. It was curated by Richard Breckon. Its last exhibition, “Play On” 150 Years of Australian Football, was a celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the first recorded game. It coincided with the stamp issue on the 29th July 2008.

The banner shows an advertisement for the football exhibition from a foldout list of planned exhibitions. The back cover gives a short history of football. The postcard was sent to individuals to promote the exhibition.

Richard Breckon produced an excellent foldout of the exhibition on the history of football.

The exhibition was extended to June 2009. Some of the photographs of the displays are shown below. (From the Stamp Bulletin)
