Manchester Postcards Introduction
Welcome to Manchester Postcards. I have been
collecting old postcards of Manchester and it's suburbs
for many years. Born and raised in Eccles I started
collecting local views which expanded into Salford and
the Manchester Ship Canal. Not too long after I expanded
again into collecting old postcards of Manchester trams
and Manchester suburbs.
Many of us enjoy looking back in time seeing how our
local community has changed over the years. It can
rekindle fond childhood memories or just reminds us of a
period in our lives spent in an area of Manchester.
Time never stands still and it's not until we take the
time to look at old images do we realise that change has
so quickly. Old photographic postcards from the
Edwardian period and later allow us to see quite clearly
just how things have changed. Many people with
connections to the Manchester area would argue that
change has not always happened for
the better and prefer to remember Manchester as it was. Manchester has evolved significantly over
the last century and changes to
the skyline, landscape, buildings, transport, fashion, people and society in general are there for all to see.
The old postcards shown on this website are from my
own collection. While many collectors prefer to keep
theirs private I think it is something to be shared.
Everyone likes to reminisce and talk about the 'Good Old
Days'. Hopefully the images you will view on this
website will do just that. I still actively collect
postcards and travel the country looking to uncover some
more postcard gems I have never seen before so the
website will continue to evolve sp please visit us again
in the future.
I welcome your feedback and memories and you can
contact me via email or message me on Facebook. If
you have inherited or have come into possession a collection of old
postcards of the Manchester area and would like to sell

purchasing any new Manchester postcards I can add to the
