Card sent to Peter Auty with the text: "Happy Summertime. Hope the yellow overalls are hanging on the peg". The image on the front was painted in 2009. It is unclear whether this was sent before or after the Black Saturday bushfires.

Part of a collection that documents the life of Peter Auty, illustrating his colourful and interesting life, and why he was well loved by his community, recognized in the Victorian Parliament, and awarded two medals posthumously for the important role he played on and following Black Saturday. This collection forms part of the Victorian Bushfires Collection. This large and diverse collection was established following Black Saturday and includes a multi-disciplinary collection of artefacts, images and stories to record the experience and impact of bushfires across Victoria's landscape, ecology and history.
