A WRITER and photographer from Cork has released a new collection of Irish postcards, capturing the social history of Ireland since the beginning of the 20th century.
Featuring rare and nostalgic postcards depicting many of Ireland’s 32 counties, Tom Cronin's The Classic Irish Postcard Collection features a number of pictorial reminders of yesteryear showcased in their original form. This captivating book also acts as a reminder of a cheerful means of communication which, due to technological evolution, has found itself on the highly endangered list.
A perfect addition to the bookshelves of all of those with a connection to the Emerald Isle, a copy of The Classic Irish Postcard Collection is also set to find a valued home in the National Archives of Ireland.
The book has been a few years in its construction. Looking far and wide to find the most interesting and rare postcards, Cronin tried to cover as much of the country as possible. None of the postcards have been altered or enhanced and all feature in their original state.
Independently published, The Classic Irish Postcard Collection is available priced €50 on the author’s website at https://bit.ly/3OdsSBo (worldwide shipping is also available).
