“Hope to see you this evening – Love, Nessie”

The Edwardian Postcard Project is an inter-disciplinary venture into the world of the Edwardian postcard. According to the Project website, the postcard enjoyed its ‘heydey’ during the Edwardian era. Investigating these postcards not only ‘sheds light on writing practices of the Edwardians’ but also ‘reveals much about the travel patterns, social networks and concerns of the age’. The Project is overseen by academics at the University of Lancaster, and has already yielded several publications. In tandem with the Project, a digital exhibition of Edwardian postcards is currently on display at Buxton Museum. For more information visit the Project website.
