Scottish Castles Association Castle Postcard Collection


Castles of Scotland - An Edwardian Collection of Picture Postcards

In the reign of Queen Victoria Post Office Regulations required that all correspondence on a postcard be on the picture side, the reverse being reserved exclusively for the address. This left little room for communication.

In 1902, with the accession of Edward VII, regulations were relaxed to permit a written message to appear alongside the address. At 1/2d (half the price of letter post) there was an immediate and massive increase in the use of postcards. In fact, there was a picture postcard ‘craze’ rising to its highest in 1905 and not dying down until1910 when the King expired.

This Edwardian passion for picture postcards has provided us with an unique resource – the ability to view castles as they were 100 years ago and more, many of which, in the interval, have been radically altered or demolished.
