Post Cards – International

Postcards were a chance for those travelling to send back home a glimpse of what they were seeing. Postcards give us a very accurate snapshot of the cities, buildings and people of that time, they give us a look into what daily life was like.

For those who stayed home, a postcard was there window to the world, treasured and saved.

While our collection is small, we wanted to share with you what those who sent these to their family and friends back home.

If you have been to any of these places, here’s your chance to see what it used to look like.

We are always interested in increasing our collection so that we may share with everyone this glimpse into our past. If you have postcards there are three ways in which you could share them with us:

1) a direct donation to the museum

2) loan them to us, we will scan them and return the originals to you

3) if you have a digital image you can send it to us at our email address: LynMuseum@gmail.com
