Postcard List

Early-1900s

Below are the postcards that I have found, published by  W J Hay.  All except one are in the 'Knox series'.  The exception is No 9 above.

All cards are sepia in tone, though there are some variation in tone, and there are several different styles of backs to the cards.

  Only one of the cards has been sent through the post - and that was one bought in a second-hand shop and posted from Dunedin to Edinburgh in 1991.  The message on the card says that the date underneath the postage stamp was 23 August 1936. 

Most of the cards show buildings with little indication of the date of the photograph. Road transport is seldom included in these scenes, but where it is, as in 7 above, it appears that the photograph may well  have been taken in the early-1900s.)
