vi + 223 pp (18 x 21.5 cm), map, 233 illustrations, index. Paperback
Classifies and lists in 223 pages, 456 picture postcards of SVG of which 233 have been illustrated. The postcards are from the period 1901 to about 1962 and descriptive and historical notes accompany many of them thus providing a unique pictorial and historical record.
Modern colour cards, chromes, have generally not been listed.
The book should appeal not only to collectors of picture postcards but also to anyone interested in any way whatsoever in any aspect of SVG – Vincentians at home and abroad, the younger ones who may like to get a glimpse of what SVG looked like, the older ones who may like to reminisce and recall SVG as it used to be and, also, of course, to visitors to the rainbow isle of St. Vincent.
