Discover the wonderful North York Moors in old picture postcards from a hundred years ago.
Picture postcards have been commonplace as a means of communicating with loved ones and sharing a scene from places visited since the late 19th century. It was naturally a popular choice for those taking holidays or travelling far from home.
Today, old postcards are a fascinating means of connecting with the past, through both the messages written from a snapshot in time, to the scene recorded in the picture on the front.
North York Moors in Old Postcards is a wonderful collection of these early scenes, showing popular destinations that we still visit today, including Whitby, Grosmont, Goathland, Helmsley, Scarborough and Pickering, as well as many surrounding towns and villages.
With cards dating back to the turn of the century a fascinating lost world is uncovered which will appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of this magnificent part of the country.
