Top price for hotel postcard

A RARE postcard featuring New Norfolk’s Star and Garter Hotel has sold for $53 on the internet auction website eBay. Dating to about 1920, the postcard, left, shows the hotel with its first-floor verandah still intact. The rear of the card describes the hotel as being under new management and recently refurbished. It names Mr T.L. Sullivan as the proprietor. It also shows that the hotel’s phone number was “New Norfolk 2”. The rival Bush Inn Hotel long held the prized “New Norfolk 1”. The card was purchased by an anonymous postcard collector.
