Billabong playing cards

Billabong dual deck by Hudson Industries, 1950s. This dual deck features two paintings by Peg Maltby, both of young and glamorous aboriginal girls. Peg Maltby was a renowned artist, but these two images: Talinga and Wongana, appear to have been specially commissioned rather than prints of existing paintings.
