Picture Postcard Annual
The 2020 edition features dealer, fair organiser and auction house listing, club contact details and information, early posting dates and auction records. It also lists postcard fairs, though at the moment we cannot be sure whether any of these will actually take place. Auctions are also listed - most of these are going ahead online.
For the first time we're including a bumper 48-page price guide, which we hope looks at postcard pricing from a new perspective. Hope you will all enjoy this!
The 2020 Annual also has features on the Cold War, Cricket, Butlin Redcoats, artist Seymour Hurley and an AR Quinton pub crawl.
Available now! Just go to the 'Picture Postcard Annuals' section of the booklist summary on this page.
Back numbers, going back to 1980, are marvellous sources of fascinating articles and well worth getting hold of. All can be ordered by clicking on the 'Picture Postcard Annuals' link under the 'Books' section of this page.

Although we haven't formally cancelled our upcoming fairs I can't frankly see any events taking place this year. It's really sad, because fairs are the social lifeblood of the hobby. I don't believe we will have any more until a vaccine is available for cv19. In the meantime, we are missing you all!
When we resume, our fairs will as usual feature old & new picture postcards, cigarette and trade cards, ephemera, maps, programmes.
