Today's Topics

  • There is no need to write everything down from the screen during the lecture.

  • The pages that you see on the screen today will remain on the internet.

You will be advised where to find these pages on the internet.

 

 

Scope

Today, we look at:

-  postcards of Scotland and some of the companies that published them.

-  the influence that postcards had on the people who wrote them and viewed them.

-  whether the postcards gave a true view, or an idealised view, of the Scottish Highlands and other parts of Scotland.
