The album contains approximately 200 postcards that were sent between 1902 and 1916. The main recipient was my great grandmother, Mrs Scudamore (although there are others). Postcards where sent from many different locations in the UK and abroad including Norway, Switzerland and The Congo. The pictures vary from extraordinary scenes of mountains,fjords and picture postcard villages like this one to rather ordinary high streets and local park scenes. Some appear to be advertising something "Talking wont fetch that biscuit box that Peak Frean + Co are advertising. I hear the idea has caught on. Dont be too late." Many of the messages are also rather ordinary and these days would be sent by text or email. The postmark indicates a time posted-obviously there were several deliveries each day. These everyday messages tell a story of what ordinary people were up to during these years and how they were communicating. Now, all these messages would be deleted. One message even reads "Mrs Burke passed away this morning about 2 0'clock am". I think this album represents the type of communication used prior to the computer age and demonstrates a historical step towards the modern age.
