Postcard views of anywhere in UK and Ireland

Browse our website  for examples of what we sell.

 

It's difficult to be prescriptive and there are some subjects cards that are of interest, but what we really want are:

 

a) views of the UK and Ireland of classic size 5.5 x 3.5 ins. (Unwanted more modern cards are 6 x 4 ins).  This normally includes cards up to the 1960s though the older the better. Real photo (glossy) cards are better than printed (matt). Tourist spots such as London Landmarks, Shakespeare's House at Stratford, cathedrals etc are of less interest

 

b) the majority must be in reasonably condition - the odd small crease is ok as is slight corner wear - but no damp smell

 

c) no remainders - i.e. lots of the same view which were originally leftovers - overproduced and kept by the boxful by publishers/distributors. Some of these may look old but they are very common.

 

d) 'subject' cards which are located such as lighthouses, canals, war memorials, vehicles in streets

 

e) artist painted views of the UK by publishers such as Tucks, Salmon and Valentines (see the lists on this site)

 

f) uncaptioned cards of places are of interest
