a Kiandra puzzle

Well, as I said, yesterday we went to Kiandra - and sort of as a consequence I spent a little bit of lunchtime looking into the history of Kiandra, and I came across this quite striking picture from the Powerhouse museum collection of a mailman delivering mail in the snow sometime around 1900 (+/-15):

Now what's also interesting is that I also stumbled across this image (dating to roughly the same time) of a cigarette card in the NLA digital collection:

Not exactly the same image but close enough to make one wonder if the artist who draw the card had seen the print ...

(and of course with my metadata hat on if it would be possible to easily query the information to see of it was possible ... )
