Old postcards
1890 - 1950


Welcome to Post-card-museum. My ambition is to show a very interesting part of our past and of human history, the period 1890- 1950, from a post-card point of view. Times have changed tremendously since then and it is interesting to see familiar places and areas the way they looked not so long time ago. These postcards are better displayed than the originals, because we have enlarged them a little. In case there is something written behind, we have published it also.

With some imagination you can almost sense the innocence and peacefulness, the silence, the low stress level, but also the low material and hygienic standards of the time, and sometimes also the horrors of the wars. You can also see how much smaller the cities and villages were and maybe hear the clip-clop of horse shoes on stone roads or the sound of other vehicles and activities which no longer exist, or hear birds sing on roads which today have heavy traffic all day-night long.

Post-card-museum is a non commercial site, and the postcards are not for sale. But the nice feelings and emotions that I have experienced from looking at them, I want to share with you and everybody who is interested. I have especially selected cards showing daily life, such as humans, fashion, traffic, shops, cars, boats, or other stuff that has changed a lot since the picture was taken. If you want to expose your own old postcards here or are interested in obtaining any of our pictures for your own use, please read this.

The collection will be continuously updated with new pictures
