Never fails to surprise me what they used to put on Coventry postcards. Still I'm grateful. If it wasn't for this sort of thing there wouldn't be as many images luring me in. Lol One postcard I'd like to see better is one I've got in a book about Coventry's industrial past. It's an aerial shot of the factory on Gosford Street, with the edges faded out. The book quality is a bit dotty and I'd love to see an original or even better the un-cropped photo.

Hi all. Do any Forumites know anything about old postcards? I've come across a collection of about 35 post cards of Coventry that have been hidden in an old desk for years. I would say they date from the early years of the 20th century judging from the fashions. Most have been posted and have a brief message to a recipient in Solihull. They're black and white (one's in colour). I wouldn't think they have any monetary value but maybe a member can advise me differently. I'm thinking they could look attractive mounted and framed. Do people collect old postcards? Smile Edited by member, 7th Apr 2017 5:50 pm

Same as MR above, eBay mostly, with a small handful from Delcampe - both are a great resource for buying & selling postcards to people like us with an interest in their city. On eBay you can search to see postcards for sale, and then you can click the "Sold listings" on the left so you can see what sort of prices they have fetched over the last few weeks, which can be handy if you're thinking of flogging a few! You could always put some images on here if you like - there might be some that we haven't already got. To see most of my collection so far, try the blue "Rob's pics" button on the left above, of which about two-thirds of the 700+ images are scans of postcards.

Historically priceless some of them. What were just casual images at the time can be like finding gold now.
