Postcard of Flinders Street:

The postcard dates from after mid 1909, when the ‘new’ Flinders Street station was completed.

It shows on the right the store of Lincoln, Stuart & Co, tailors. (See branded buttons pages.)

New Button backmark:

Thanks Cam Smith

In Kelly’s  London Post Office Directory in 1891, Howard and Davies were listed as Australian shippers & tailors’ trimming warehousemen, 63 Aldermanbury, Central Eastern London. The Queen Victoria crown dates the button pre-1902, and the design appears on Victorian Railways uniform buttons.
