Picture Postcards from London and the World

by Christina

I collect picture postcards, and have a box stuffed full of them. I can’t visit a place without pillaging the gift shop afterwards for postcards galore, and free postcards at bars, cinemas and anywhere else free postcards might happen to be are impossible to resist.

Here are some vaguely Cemetery Club themed picture postcards I’ve collected in recent times, for your viewing pleasure.

Historical landmarks of London, and the world, as well as churches and curiosities from various corners of the planet.
