Tuckfield's Tea is still operating, or were a
year or two ago. Their office is in Yarra Street, South Yarra (Melbourne) and
they will swap cards. I have the first four albums complete and nearly the
fifth. I think the albums date much more recent than the 1950s. There are 96
cards per album but note that card no. 188 is wrong (allegedly it is a Pacific
Gull but certainly is not). I have been collecting them for about 30 years, a
bit of difficult as I don't drink tea (or coffee, etc).

Tuckfield Tea's bird album
Tuckfields' bird card album
for cards no. 1 to 96, with notes for
birdwatchers, 2nd edition,
Tuckfield's Teas, South Yarra, in the 1950's.
an interesting curiousity piece, but unfortunately the set (of 96)
is not complete - it is missing one here and there.
still have any of the cards of this set stowed away anywhere
might be able to let me have?
In fact, does anyone at all have one of
these? Does anyone know who the
Birding-Aus is on the Web
