Introduced in the 1890s, picture postcards could be sent for half the price of letters and thus boomed in popularity in the late Victorian and Edwardian eras. This collection of cards depicting the city of Leeds provides early views of principal buildings, industry, and leisure and commercial activities. The detailed captions identify the scenes and tell the history of the rapidly changing city.
