The New Zealand Postcard Society is committed to growing the knowledge base of our early postcard phographers and publishers. To do this we need your help.

Please check your own postcard collections and if you are able to add to the J.G list below then we would like to hear from you. You can do this very simply by using the 'Contribute' form provided at tghe end of the index. Fill in all the relevant details about your postcard/s and upload an image using the facility provided. Our preference is for 600 dpi .jpg images (file size less than 5MB).

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.
