About This Site

This site is not a grand commercial enterprise. It is a labour of love based on my two hobbies of collecting old school postcards and family history.

As my collection of postcards has grown I realised that they would be of interest to family historians around the world looking to find out more about the schools their ancestors went to.

This site is the result - a collection of postcards of schools from across Great Britain. They include both external photographs of the buildings and also, more interestingly, class groups. A couple of sample pictures can be seen on the right.

There will also be a number of school photographs, certificates and cigarette cards that I have picked up along the way.

As well as pictures from my own collection I would be happy to add anyone else's pictures if they would like to contribute to the site. Each picture would be acknowledged and copyright would remain with the contributor.

If you have any pictures to offer or if you have any questions or comments about the site please email me at :
