I started collecting old postcards of Crowthorne in early 2006. In less than a year, I got over 40 cards. I happened to find a site displaying postcards of Ramsgate, and it had recent photos to compare them to. I’m trying to do this for as many of my cards as possible, but there are still some to do.
I used to display them on my own website, but in early 2007, I decided to create a site dedicated to displaying items relating to the history of Crowthorne – postcards, old newspaper articles, that sort of thing.
I’m adding scans of the fronts of the postcards first. I will then add recent photos of the locations, and then scans of the backs of the cards. After that, I will be trying to find and add other items, such as newspaper articles.
I hope the site grows, and that other people will contribute their collections as well.
