A view of the largest railway crossing in the World, taken from Central Station, Newcastle upon Tyne, c1930 (TWAM ref. DF.ATK/16/1/2).

The postcard is unused.

This set celebrates the many postcards in our collections. The people, places and events they show can give us an insight into the past, documenting the landscape, the fashions, the way we lived. Some postcards are unused but others tell us something about the people who bought them, through the messages they wrote. They can give us a fascinating glimpse into people’s lives.
