This postage paid envelope features an image from the October 1934 meeting of the Women's Pioneer Society and the motto of the society in the postage paid area.

Ninety years ago, on 7 June 1929, five women- Miss Carlotta Doyle, her sister Mrs Kathleen Shekleton, Miss Iris da Silva Waugh, Miss Inez Radford and Mrs Mary Griffiths- all from pioneer families, met in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney, to discuss forming a society of women descendants of the early pioneers. By the end of that year, the Women's Pioneer Society had attracted 350 members. Today, the Women's Pioneer Society of Australasia has 128 members throughout Australia, Papua New Guinea and Fiji. The aims of the society are to keep alive the best traditions of our pioneer families and women, and to maintain and promote the historical record relating to pioneer women. The motto of the society is Ab initio coloniae, "From the beginning of settlement".
