Company Christmas card, sent by State Savings Bank of Victoria branch manager Keith Morter. Features a full-colour reproduction of an artwork titled 'Pony Club, Camperdown' by Dorothy Sutton.

The card belonged to Harold 'Keith' Morter who spent his whole working life at the State Savings Bank of Victoria. Through the course of his long and successful career and subsequent retirement, Keith saved a number of mementos of the bank. Keith's collection not only provides insight into one man's working life, it also covers some important periods in Australian banking history, including the introduction of cheque accounts, the opening of small branches across the State, and the adoption of decimal currency.
