We have purchased an alphabet frieze from the NGA in which each letter of the alphabet is accompanied by an Australian image - mainly bird or animal.  When we sent this to a german friend, as a gift for her new baby's nursery wall,  she replied that it was "interesting" and they had "had some nice fun trying to work out how some of the images link to the letter" they were supporting.
We then paid some more attention to the images and three are in the attachment.  You may like to link the image to its letter (although not shown E is for Emu etc) and I'd welcome your suggestions. I rate 1 of them relatively easy, 1 less than easy and have no idea how the bird in the third links to its letter.  As a possible clue the design was done in London on 1902.
