Postcards from Alnmouth


Large Format Softback Book

86 pages.


Postcards from Alnmouth, and all other Victorian/Edwardian seaside resorts, were a quick and easy way to communicate back to loved ones. They are an excellent way of showing how any resort may have changed over the years, how people dressed and acted and such issues as which modes of transport were available at each point in time.

John Yearnshire has been collecting postcards for over 45 years, specialising in cards of Alnmouth village, Lesbury village and also comic police post cards. He has over 250 Alnmouth cards in his collection, and these 86 pages feature 166 of the very best, in colour and black and white. They are a historical gem and a source of enormous interest and pleasure.
