There was a national craze for postcards from 1898 to the end of the Great War in 1918, the so-called Golden Age of the Postcard. With up to six deliveries a day postcards could be used to arrange meetings, much as we do by texting today. Picture postcards were produced as souvenirs covering every conceivable aspect of life and death and millions were sent through the post each week. Although Fulham Palace was a private residence, postcards were sold of the exterior, the interior and the gardens as well of the Bishop of London himself.
This exhibition surveys the variety of postcards from all periods relating to the Palace and explores what they can reveal about its history. It also includes embroidered postcards of the Palace and the garden, made by Fulham Palace volunteers, who took their inspiration from the silk cards produced during the Great War in France.
