Postcard collectors are called Deltiologists and they are interested in developing their photographic interests. These are varied and cover subjects such as local history, family history, transport, militaria, nostalgia, thematic topics and much more on postcards old and new.

Postcard dealers also attend our meetings and they are willing to search out any elusive wants you have so giving members a chance to build their collections without having to travel far afield. There is also an annual Postcard Fair for our Mat meeting which attracts over 10 dealers.
