2010 Review & Photos >>

Following the success of last year's Picture Postcard Show in London, we are hoping that even more dealers and collectors from all over Britain, plus many from Europe and America; will be present at the next event held at the Royal Horticultural Halls, Westminster, London. Collectors came in their thousands last year from all over the UK Europe and worldwide, to view the stocks on sale and look at the special exhibitions.

THE VENUE: Lawrence Hall, Royal Horticultural Society, Greycoat Street, LONDON SW1

The event (subtitled BIPEX - British International Postcard Exhibition) is the world's most prestigious card show, and a vast array of collectable examples will be on view. Postcards on sale will include vintage material from the late 19th/early 20th century - they were introduced in Britain in large numbers from 1894; and by the reign of King Edward VII (1901-10) had established themselves as the easiest and quickest method of sending short messages and greetings. Also will be available near-contemporary cards from the past twenty years.

The event is a marvellous opportunity for visitors to see (and perhaps buy!) some of the best cards available today. Many of these will interest family historians, who find that postcards of street scenes, churches and local events can often be used to illustrate their family trees.

Visitors can sell as well as buy, obtain albums and other accessories and get free advice on all aspects of the hobby, or valuations of postcards they bring in. The latest magazines and books for card collectors will also be available some of which are launched at the event.
