Our family has been collecting quality antique postcards as well as rare stamps for the past two generations.
After collecting antique postcards for years we recently decided to sell a portion of our personal collection.
Collecting Postcards has taught us about World Events, Geography, Architecture, Life Styles and illustrators; It has introduced us to Famous people, Tragedies and numerous dinner conversations. We hope that you get the bug of collecting postcards as it has kept us fascinated over the last 4 decades.
DELTIOLOGY: is the collection, study, and preservation of postcards for fun, recreation, relaxation, and enjoyment – and for the historical preservation of life in years past. Many people collect because they are nostalgic or perhaps yearn for a time they never experienced. Antique cards give us a glimpse of the past; modern cards picture contemporary times. Antique cards tell us about social climate and life style, changes in transportation and business, and show us what existed before a disaster or a wrecker’s ball had its way. They remind us of places that are gone, or changed beyond recognition. They hold memories!!!
