The Development of the Gibraltar Picture Postcard
Lecture by: Richard Garcia
The lecture will examine the background to the issue of the first postcards, which were the forerunners of the picture postcard. It will then focus on the development of the postcard in Gibraltar, and the explosion in the publication of cards after the Gibraltar Post Office legalised that they could be sent by post in November 1897 at a reduced postal rate. The lecture will consider some of the publishers of Gibraltar postcards, and the images that they chose for their cards in the early years.
