Every county — and most places in Ireland — are represented. The views show the transition from muddy roads and horse drawn vehicles to tarmac and trams and then to buses and motor cars, the simple pleasures of the seaside resorts such as Ballybunion, Portrush and Bray, the naughtiness — or politically incorrectness — of “saucy postcards” from English (who else?) holiday spots, and the Art Nouveau and Art Deco influences on postcard designs.
There are also large collections of worldwide cards including Gruss Aus, Art Nouveau and Art Deco, glamour, greetings, comic, mods etc. Estimates run from €50 to €3,000.
