Today I have started a new page where I will be posting my grandmother Isabella Brownlees (1874-1958)’s post card collection. Most of the images are from Scotland and the English counties of Durham and Northumberland but there are a few from further afield – Paris, Ireland, Buffalo, New York, etc.  There are about 270 cards in total and I will be posting them gradually as I get time to scan and transcribe them. Most of the cards are from 1903 -1909 but she continued to add a few to the collection until the 1930s. Some of the cards were mailed to her but others were passed on by family and friends who knew she was collecting post cards. The image on the front of the card was the important thing for her post card album but I have been fascinated by the glimpse into her life and the activities of her family that  comes from the notes on the back of the cards. The link is:
