Images on postcards were often the first views foreigners had of the far-flung corners of the world. EDM’s Early Postcards series, featuring material drawn from private collections, presents a rare and fascinating glimpse into the changing landscapes and lifestyles of the past. An attractive and nostalgic record, these postcards are also a useful resource for those interested in archaeology, architecture, design and town planning. Deltiologists (postcard collectors) will appreciate the inclusion of information such as cancellation date, publisher, series, and photographer or artist.
