The Edwardian Postcard Project

A team at Lancaster University has launched the next stage of its Edwardian Postcard Project.

Julia Gillen, Dr Amanda Pullen and Nigel Hall from Manchester Metropolitan University are involved in a project to put online a collection of 1,000 postcards, their transcribed messages and, where available, historical information about the postcard users.
