Northumbria at War on old Picture Postcards


During the 1914-18 war picture postcards were a major avenue for communication and morale boosting between the boys at the front and their loved ones. Millions were sent, both scenic and saucy, black and white and even some coloured. This fascinating little book is packed with examples from the personal collection of the author and gives a viewpoint on a lost and traumatic period in our history ( contains an image of Alnwick Camp).
