Collecting postcards about the suffragettes

Text Box:


I collect postcards relating to the women's suffrage movement of the early part of last century in Britain. When I started my collection, I imagined that like the movement itself, the postcards depicting the people and activity of the period would be well documented. However, I found that while information is available, it is scattered and sometimes difficult to find.

So far I have focused mostly on the pro-suffrage or neutral cards that I have come across as the more common ’comic’ anti-suffrage cards make me feel a little uncomfortable.
