    These are beautiful. I often work on illustrated local history books, and the images that survive from that period are often just those that interest postcard collectors the most – so old buildings etc – you see the social side of things much more rarely. These have such an innocent and calm feeling to them – the last one in particular. They’re absolutely fantastic, what a great find.
