Welcome to the ‘Marks Postcard Chat’ webpage. I have been collecting postcards for over 45 years now, and I have quite an eclectic collection covering a whole selection of themes from a range of time periods. I aim to illustrate some of the postcards from this collection here on this webpage. I also hope to pass on some helpful updates about new cards, recently obtained, and locations where these may still be found. The pages of postcards will act like a tour of my collection and as a diary of new buys and places visited to try and obtain more postcards, either from days out or holidays, both in the UK and abroad (Florida is a favourite holiday location of ours and as a result I am a big ‘Disney’ collector – expect some of my Disney buys to appear here). So, what can you expect to see here. Well, certainly modern postcards bought recently and older modern postcards from the 1960’s through to the 1990’s, and beyond. Also, postcards which are more than 100 years old. Some will be topographical, others thematic in content, also I will depict philatelic items, and by this, I mean postcards which have been used in an interesting way with special hand stamps, cachets and postage stamps. In fact, the whole gamut of the world of postcard collecting. I hope you enjoy the images and I would be delighted to hear your views on the postcards I have depicted. Regards, Mark
