Re: Albums and Auctions

someone has prob already said this but a lotta people get old empty albums and fill them with rubbish, it's prob best to buy the singles you want, like browse on Delcampe rather than buy job lots, which reminds me, what can I do with all these cards I bought and don't want!?

Re: Fairs or online

I think you shouldn't rule out any way of buying (unless you have not got a computer!) certainly support fairs and don't rule out junk shops etc, I found some interesting cards the other day! But I look on line most evenings, dunno what for, I can't afford all I might want, but you never know what y...

German WWI Felfpost cards

Re: Postcard copyright issues

On a general note, am I being too simplistic in thinking the copyright of "Golden Age" cards has long expired? Anyway the images on cards were meant to be seen. Did those photographers a 100 years ago ask permission to take the pics? Incidentally I was stopped from photographing a/ the funny relief ...
