Mundabullangana: 'MUNDABULLANGANA/12FEB12/WESTERN [AUSTRALIA]' (stops at sides & 'M' in line with dateline) superb strike on 3d Swan. RO 16/7/1906; TO 1/5/1919; closed post-1969. The only recorded example. [PMI records a very similar cds, without stops & with 'M' above the dateline, in 1930 only. We note that the frame on this cds is largely missing which was probably the reason for its replacement]
Palace Hotel: 'PALACE HOTEL/JU24/12/PERTH.W.A' four fine to superb strikes on 2d yellow block of 4. PO 8/7/1897; closed mid-1917. Delightful.

PMI states that The Granites opened 10/12/1900, was soon renamed, and that all recorded examples of this cds date from after the name-change]
