Old Postcards

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.

I have 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 method 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.

I welcome your comments and questions so please feel free to use the contact form and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Let us know the areas that you collect and I will do all I can to source some special postcards that may interest you. If you have any postcards to sell then please let me know. I am always looking to buy good real photographic topographical and social history postcards of Great Britain so if you have any old postcards for sale then please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.

To your picture postcard collecting pleasure.
