Thank you for visiting
Mark Fynn Postcards. I specialise in real photographic
topographical, transport and social history postcards of Great Britain.
Occasionally I do offer the odd printed postcard where we feel it
has a particular interest but for sheer quality, real
photographic postcards are hard to beat. Finding highly
collectable postcards at the right price means I have to
search the country far and wide and visit postcard fairs,
antique fairs and shops all over the UK to try and uncover
some postcard gems.
personally been collecting postcards since 1981 and
understand that some postcards only reveal themselves once in a
lifetime. Maybe you have found postcards of an area that you
collect in the past and refused to buy them for one reason
or another and have never seen them again. Later on you regret not buying it
and hope that the postcard is still there next time
only to be disappointed. I think a lot of postcard
collectors can relate to this situation and it's all part of
the hunt for special postcards.
Postcard collecting is a
fascinating hobby and I could feel quite at home collecting
a wide range of subject cards but I decided on real
photographic topographical and social history postcards of
Great Britain. They intrigue me and show an insight into a
period now lost forever. A photographic postcard can provide
atmosphere and detail unsurpassed by any other printing
of the day. The photographer captured a moment when time
stood still for a few short seconds and over 100-years later
we can enjoy these postcards just as much as the Edwardians
did back in the day. In Edwardian times most households had a postcard album
and with a postal system delivering 6-times a day you could
be in touch will relatives and friends extremely quickly.
You could send a postcard in the morning that could be
delivered that afternoon or evening thanks to a high class
postal system that sadly cannot be matched today.
I have listed postcards on my website for
sale that I personally find interesting. It could be
a busy street scene with trams, it could be a view of a busy
dock area or a Sunday procession through a local town. Each
postcard listed is unique in it's own right. I hope that you
find something of interest in an area that you collect.
Don't forget to bookmark this web site because new stock is
added every weekday. I hit the road at the weekends trying
to find those wonderful Edwardian real photographic gems so
the website is updated Monday to Friday.
