I am a little light on for the "Souvenir of the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement" overprints in 1977 but here is what I have:
Famous Australians stamps fdc postmarked Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement fdi - 10th November 1976 with &quot;Souvenir of Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement&quot; overprint with &quot;Souvenir&quot; correctly spelled.<br /><br />This was the last Australian stamp issue of 1976

So it appears that the overprint used for 1977 had the incorrectly spelled "Souveneir" which wasn't corrected because nobody noticed or nobody cared. :roll:

I have one more of the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement cancel on the Christmas 1978 FDC.

The overprint (without typo) is the basic “Souvenir of Pioneer Settlement” type.

Hi BigSaint,

And all this started because of me posting a picture to show how different my 1977 Aust SJ Pioneer Settlement FDI FDC was compared to your two. Strange how it appears to have only happened in 1977, must have been a good New Year's party 😁
I posted it on my thread but no one said anything, it was only when I posted it on yours it was spotted easier.

Hi BigSaint,

I wonder if the same is the case with the 1977 Australia Silver Jubilee FDI Pioneer Settlement FDC's, the two different overprints. I have the one with the spelling mistake.
I have only seen one for mine upto now, but something to watch out for.

Desmond

I doubt it. It looked like it changed on 18th October 1978.

There have been a number changes to the Swan Hill overprint over the years & at one stage they seemed to change annually. The big question here is why did it change "mid-issue".

However just because I haven't seen something doesn't mean it doesn't exist, so don't let me stop your search.

Perhaps there were two overprints being applied at the same time?

Does anyone know how the overprints were applied?

Private hand-stamp/s, on-site printer/s, off-site printer/s?

A pick up at Brighton Philatelic Society last Tuesday night:
1978 Hors Racing fdc postmarked South Yarra Vic fdi postmark - 18th October 1978
1978 Hors Racing fdc postmarked South Yarra Vic fdi postmark - 18th October 1978
South Yarra is an inner-city suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, 4 km south-east of Melbourne's Central Business District, located within the Cities of Melbourne and Stonnington local government areas. South Yarra recorded a population of 25,028 at the 2021 census.

The area east of Punt Road is in the City of Stonnington and the area to the west is in the City of Melbourne.

The main shopping region of South Yarra runs along Toorak Road and Chapel Street. Trade along these two arteries are focused on trendy and upmarket shopping, restaurants, nightclubs and cafe culture. The area of South Yarra centred along Commercial Road was for several decades one of Melbourne's gay villages.

South Yarra is also home to some of Melbourne's most prestigious residential addresses. Residential land price records (per square metre) have been set by properties in Domain Road, Walsh Street and Fairlie Court.

The area was settled by European settlers in the 1830s, around the time of the establishment of Melbourne. During the 1840s, it became popular with wealthy citizens of Melbourne as a suburban retreat from the town. Several large houses were built and, together with neighbouring Toorak, it maintained its upper-class reputation into the post-World War II period. South Yarra Post Office was open briefly in 1854, then reopened on 21 June 1858.

And it came with this "matching" cover
1981 Sporting Personalities fdc postmarked Beecroft NSW fdi - 18th February 1981
1981 Sporting Personalities fdc postmarked Beecroft NSW fdi - 18th February 1981
Beecroft is a suburb in the Northern Sydney region of Sydney, New South Wales, 22 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district in the local government areas of Hornsby Shire and City of Parramatta.

Beecroft resides the upper section of Lane Cove National Park, and is one of the oldest established suburbs in New South Wales. The suburb is notably affluent, and is characterised by leafy streets and large federation homes on big blocks of land.

Beecroft was orchard country before its suburban development. The railway arrived in 1886 and Sir Henry Copeland, Minister of Lands, conducted a survey of the area to determine its suitability as a residential area. He named the suburb after the maiden name of his two wives, Hannah and Mary Beecroft, (two sisters he married in succession). Their names are also remembered through the respective naming of the suburb's east-west streets; Hannah Street, Copeland Road and Mary Street. Beecroft Post Office opened on 10 February 1890.[4] Due to the strength of the temperance movement in Beecroft at that time there have never been any hotels in Beecroft. The bushland and amenity of Beecroft has been largely preserved due to the efforts of the Beecroft Cheltenham Civic Trust which has been very active since its inception in 1958.

The BCHG was founded in 1987 by local history enthusiasts to record the history of Beecroft and Cheltenham and to collect and preserve photos and other historical information relative to the area. Since 2005 the BCHG has been part of the Beecroft Cheltenham Civic Trust. In 1995 a book covering the history of Beecroft and Cheltenham up to 1914 was published. In 2004 a book on walks around the district was published. In 2005 a book about the Beecroft Children’s Library was published.

The majority of commercial activity conducted in Beecroft is concentrated within a couple of blocks. Although not large by Sydney standards, it is nonetheless important in servicing the suburb and its immediate area, including neighbouring suburbs such as Cheltenham and Epping. The commercial area is located between Beecroft Road and Beecroft railway station. In keeping with the spirit of the traditional heritage, Old English is used throughout as the typeset of the Beecroft Village arcade. Hannah Street, the suburb's main commercial street, underwent a significant beautification upgrade in 2005.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beecroft,_New_South_Wales

Phoenix says Beecroft opened as a Receiving Office on 10th February 1890 & became a Post Office on 21st August 1895.

Well I am not sure what happened here but it cannot have been introduced on 1st November 1979 when it was used on the Horse Racing fdc on 18th October 1978.

A quick review of what is on eBay tonight show many fdcs before Colleen's date of 1st November 1979 as first day of use but none before 18th October 1978. :D

An acquisition last night at the Brighton Philatelic Society from a founding member of the Italian Philatelic Society:
Australian Horse Racing fdc postmarked Atherton Qld fdi postmark - 18th October 1978.
Australian Horse Racing fdc postmarked Atherton Qld fdi postmark - 18th October 1978.
Atherton is a rural town and locality in the Tablelands Region. In the 2016 census, Atherton had a population of 7,331.

Atherton is on the Atherton Tableland in Far North Queensland about 80 kms south west of Cairns & about 1700 kms north west of Brisbane via the Bruce Highway.

Atherton is joined by the Gillies Highway to Yungaburra, the Kennedy Highway north to Mareeba and south to Ravenshoe and Mount Garnet, the Malanda Road to Malanda and the Herberton Road to Herberton.

The town was named after John Atherton, a pioneer pastoralist who settled at Mareeba (then known as Emerald End) in 1875. The area was formerly known as Priors Pocket or Priors Creek. It was named Atherton by Falconer West Hutton, the surveyor who prepared the town layout on 11 May 1885.

Atherton Post Office opened by 1903 (a receiving office had been open since 1889).

The Atherton War Memorial commemorates local residents who died in World War I. It was dedicated on 1 May 1924 by the Tinaroo Shire chairman, Frederick Grau. It is the only war memorial in Queensland of a digger in an animated pose, It was originally located in the middle of the street adjacent to where the ANZ bank is now located, but was later moved to the park outside the old Atherton RSL sometime after the 1950s.

Another pick up at the Brighton Philatelic Society last night:
Australian Horse Racing fdc postmarked Thomastown Vic cds postmark on fdi - 18th October 1978.<br /><br />Australia Post list a fdi postmark for Thomastown but I am yet to see this one, so this will serve as a space filler till I find one.
Australian Horse Racing fdc postmarked Thomastown Vic cds postmark on fdi - 18th October 1978.

Australia Post list a fdi postmark for Thomastown but I am yet to see this one, so this will serve as a space filler till I find one.
Thomastown is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, 16 kms north of Melbourne's central business district, located within the City of Whittlesea local government area. Thomastown recorded a population of 20,234 at the 2021 census.

Thomastown is known for sharing its area with Westgarthtown, a historical settlement.

History and development

Thomastown came into existence in 1848 when the John Honniball Thomas and Mary née Hartnell family bought 106 acres, the land north of Melbourne for market gardening. Two years later, William Westgarth bought land north of Thomas' holding, which he made way for German settlers.

Thomastown Post Office opened on 9 June 1862.

The Thomastown area attracted many farmers and much horse-racing until World War II. In 1889, the Epping railway line opened and milk production and distribution grew during the 1930s when a German dairying family formed the Pura Dairy, ultimately to expand into Preston and became Metropolitan Dairies Pty. Ltd. In 1947, a housing co-operative was formed 2 km. north in the suburb of Lalor. Soon, residential development began at Thomastown. While German settlers already call this area home, more settlers moved in, mostly Italians, Yugoslavs and Greeks. In 1961 St. Clare's Primary School opened, followed by Thomastown Secondary College and then Thomastown West Primary School.

Modern Thomastown

Thomastown has a strip shopping centre in High Street parallel to the Thomastown Railway Station, a shopping centre corner of Edgars Road and Main Street and shops on Settlement Road and Dalton Road, plus various shopping strips east of the train station. Thomastown Secondary College is located on Main Street, adjacent to Thomastown West Primary School, Thomastown Recreational and Aquatic Centre (TRAC) and Thomastown Library which is managed by Yarra Plenty Regional Library. Thomastown East has a grid street configuration, predating the later configuration in Thomastown West which protects residential streets from through traffic. On the south of Thomastown there are numerous factories and an electricity terminal station, near the Metropolitan Ring Road / Northern Ring Road. There is also the Hume Freeway, which is west of Thomastown.

Thomastown railway station

Thomastown railway station opened on 23 December 1889. It was originally a single platform railway station located on High Street between Main Street and Spring Street. Thomastown railway station is directly linked to the City via the Mernda line. In 2011, the station was upgraded. A second platform, 310 parking spaces for cars, and a pedestrian overpass to cross over to the second platform were all added as were lifts for the disabled and new Myki card systems which replaced the old ticket system.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomastown,_Victoria

Years ago I had a client at Thomastown. It was part of a bigger group, & often required late hours to meet financial deadlines. One such night I left about 9pm & the next morning I returned to find bullet holes through the front door & in the wall behind. I tried not to work that late again out there. :shock:

James Cook University (JCU) is a public university in North Queensland, Australia. The second oldest university in Queensland, JCU is a teaching and research institution. The university's main campuses are located in the tropical cities of Cairns and Townsville, and one in the city state of Singapore. JCU also has study centres in Mount Isa, Mackay, Thursday Island and Rockhampton. A Brisbane campus, operated by Russo Higher Education, delivers undergraduate and postgraduate courses to international and domestic students. The university's main fields of research include environmental sciences, biological sciences, mathematical sciences, earth sciences, agricultural and veterinary sciences, technology and medical and health sciences.

During the 1970 Royal Visit to Australia, the royal family were driven to the site of Queensland's newest university, the James Cook University, Townsville campus. In the presence of many dignitaries, HRH Queen Elizabeth II formally granted autonomy to North Queensland's new educational institution.
