What better way to look back to the past than by looking at old postcards.
This collection of photos was taken by Dungog photographer George Kelly and make for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
Photos are also included from A Bird's Eye View: A Portfolio of outstanding aerial photographs of Newcastle and suburbs. A Special 'Newcastle Sun' Reader Service .
These photos have been supplied by the University of Newcastle's Cultural Collections with the help of the Vera Deacon Regional History Fund.
