Picture postcards are important cultural and historical sources. They can tell us a lot about the ideas and thinking of the time in which they were created. However, this also means that they sometimes convey views that may seem politically and socially inappropriate to us today. We would therefore like to emphasize that we are publishing the images in this collection solely as a source for scholarly research. The contents of the illustrated cards in no way reflect the opinions or views of the members of the Picture Postcard Archive team or the collectors who provided us with the cards.
