having learned that he's not as fit as he believed, is hauled up from
Federal Pass in this c1910 postcard by Harry Phillips. Exhausted
tourists, who had underestimated the climb back out, were a popular
theme for local cartoonists of the time.
Some of the most venturesome - probably their maiden visit - of
the visitors started off their trips with gay & joyous hearts,
never heeding the number of steps they were descending, being
enchanted at what was revealed to their gaze at every corner, & so
enticed on & on, until many found themselves in the forest at the
extreme bottom of this marvellous gorge..... But all things have
an ending, & to notice the forlorn, tired & jaded looks
depicted on the countenances of many on their return journey gave food
for thought; drag, drag, crawled along their weary limbs, some ready
to grasp whatever they could for support to prevent their tottering
legs from giving way altogether, others with perspiration teeming off
their faces, whilst many giving the appearance of collapsed footballs.
