Northern Ireland's picture postcard past goes online

Northern Ireland's picture postcard past goes online"Bustling scenes of the Belfast dockers' strike and the stunning cliffs of Portrush are just two of the images featured in a new collection of historic postcards. Over 6,000 photographs, political prints and portraits from days gone by form part of a project launched at the Linen Hall Library in Belfast. The images, which have been scanned and digitised for an online archive, go on sale to the public from today through the Belfast Telegraph's website. Featuring grand architecture, old family photos and unspoilt landscapes, the postcards give a sense of life in towns and cities across Ulster more than 100 years ago"
