Wow! That must be some collection! Selling at an specialised auction house would be one route to sell, but there are fees involved.

Re: Davidson's Real Photographic Series

I am in possession of four postcards relating to Culloden Moor and wondered if there was any value to them and/or if someone might be interested. Many thanks, Bob.
