British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

BBC4 showed an interesting history of the picture postcard under the title of The Picture Postcard World of Nigel Walmsley. The programme can be viewed here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b014r789 The only point of disagreement is that I would argue that the picture postcard did not democratise images of the working class - the carte de visite and photography had done that some fifty years beforehand.
