Swalwell Postcards

 


The majority of these cards were contributed by Michael Gallagher, and are from his personal collection which were originally featured on his now closed Swalwell Village website. Some of these images are also re-coloured photographs by person(s) unknown.

Most of these cards were printed around the turn of the last century, by a local printer, A. A. Fletcher , and were some of the first hand-painted coloured cards of their kind.
