There’s plenty of diversity as usual in the July issue of Picture Postcard Monthly, which is now out for sale at £4 at fairs around the country – or direct from us with postage.
The spirit of summer is captured in an article about Fred Pontins Holiday Camps, which is well-illustrated with cards from the 1970s. We also look at the “public enemy number one” – the seagull, and there’s a story about the Bird Man of Hyde Park, to continue the theme of our feathered friends.
One of the country’s most-experienced auctioneers looks at four decades in the auction rooms, and there’s also a superbly-illustrated article on all the Roman pontiffs; and, still overseas, a fascinating feature on The Sphinx in Egypt.
Plus all your regular features such as our look at the auctions scene, a round-up of news, a look at the country’s network of postcard clubs, our regular report on the moderns scene and a vibrant Postbag.
