PUNCH & THE PICTURE POSTCARD

BE WARNED - this page is picture-rich and will take a while to download when first viewed.
Time to make a cuppa!!


The Punch & Judy Show, long associated with the English seaside resorts, was a popular subject for Picture Postcards. There must be hundreds of these in existence, and postcard fairs are frequent around Britain, making postcards a relatively easy and economical form of memorabilia to collect. Here are a few examples to whet your appetite.
