Description:
At the height of the postcard boom, when there were several deliveries of the post every day, you could send a postcard in the morning to arrange a meeting for that afternoon. Postcards were indeed the emails of their day.

Old postcards have an immediacy about them that is striking: they provide a rich source of imagery and, together with their messages, they give us a glimpse of another life, another time.

Among the 300 postcards in this book, most are from the late 1880s to the 1950s, with a few included from the following decades to today. There are postcards of just about everything?war and peace, disasters and celebrations, holidays and home life, sports and theatre, rural and city living, love for 'The Dear Old Country' and pride in Australia?to name a few. Author Jim Davidson takes readers on a historical journey through an extraordinary range of postcards that provide fascinating insights to moments in time.
