Reflections of a Bygone Age - Online Shop


On-Line Shop is our website/shop and features a variety of products all based on old picture postcard images. We have a range of almost 200 books in print covering areas and subjects countrywide, but by far our biggest series is called ‘Yesterday’s Nottinghamshire’ , with 52 books available. This series was launched in 1990 and has been gradually extended since. All have around 50-70 old postcard (c.1905) images and titles include Nottingham’s Lost Landmarks, Robin Hood, Arnold, Mansfield, Newark, Southwell, Radford, West Bridgford, Radford and Lenton. Exceptions to the old postcard images are a book on the Meadows in the 1970s and two volumes of Nottinghamshire Steam Railways in the 1970s, which have contemporary photographs.

Other books we sell and/or have published include priced postcard catalogue, volumes on Golf, Cricket, Trams, Railways, Admiral Lord Nelson and all kinds of subjects.

We also publish a range of Nottinghamshire postcards, including 47 (so far!) of the N.E.T. tram system, a set of 10 artist-drawn ‘Nottinghamshire Towns’ and a dozen artist-drawn Nottingham cards, all incorporating Robin Hood and various features of the city. Our other postcard ventures include a series of postcards published to raise money for the BBC ‘Children in Need’ appeal. 

Nottingham Tourist Information Centre:

In addition to the on-line shop you can also buy a selection of postcards and books from the main Tourist Information Centre (behind the council house) in Nottingham City Centre. 

Upcoming dates Saturday 6th May, Sunday 3 September and Saturday 4 November 2017. We hold four collectors’ fairs each year at Studio 7, King’s Meadow Campus, Lenton Lane, Nottingham. These feature dealers from all over the country coming together to market a range of old and modern picture postcards, cigarette and trade cards, ephemera, stamps and books. We’ve held these since 1980 in various venues, including Neales of Nottingham’s salerooms on Mansfield Road, the iconic Lakeside Pavilion at the University, Harvey Hadden Sports Centre, Bilborough College and Newark Showground.

Events are open to the public 10am – 4pm. Admission is £1.50, which includes a programme and souvenir cards, and the chance to look at fine stocks of old postcards. Details from 0115 937 4079 or at
