– Postcard list index

The New Zealand Postcard Society is committed to growing the knowledge base of our early postcard photographers and publishers and to continue doing this we need your help please.

Many of our members undertake their own private deltiology study out of personal interest and this accumulated research material currently forms much of the content of the Postcard Pillar magazine as well as the postcard lists below. We encourage you to also contribute if you can.

If you have a list of the cards in your own collection then please could you send it to us using the link below. Currently one of our NZ Postcard Society members is collating a New Zealand wide list and we would love to add your area of collecting interest to that archive.

Expanding the content of the Society's postcard lists will go a long way towards developing a broader understanding of the images captured, and the postcards published by our early postcard photographers and publishers. Please take the time to contribute to this archive.
