Nearly all of the images on this site are scans of original postcards, illustrations or photgraphs. We have attempted to reproduce those originals here as faithfully as possible.

However, many of the originals are now showing signs of age. Modern digital techniques allow us to enhance those images and, in some cases, we have done so. It is important to realise that these "enhancements" can also introduce "detail" that was never there and colours that may look revived and "truer" are not neccesarily the original colours.

We include the "enhanced" versions because they often make it easier to see what you're looking at but it should be borne in mind that they are the result of unintelligent computer algorithms and should not be regarded as more accurate than the original versions. If you can't see something in the original it probably wasn't there.
