Our November edition of Picture Postcard Monthly is now available on sale at postcard fairs around the country – and from us directly.
It’s a special 56-page edition to mark the centenary of the end of World War One.
The major feature articles include the internment of the German High Seas Fleet, a look at war posters from all conflicts, a report on cartoon cards produced by a Private Jones, the French city of Rouen during the war, the story behind a lesser-known WW1 song, and the history of the Cenotaph in London and the Poppy Factory in Surrey.
As usual, the 56 pages are packed full of some amazing postcard images from yesteryear.
Order your copy now – or why not subscribe for six months or a year. PPM is a great idea for a Christmas gift.
