Post card

 

The Library is in possession of several thousands of post cards from all ages.

If the first known post cards date from 1889, the oldest ones from our collection are only from 1898.

The subjects are very diversified, since they are from all over the world, mainly from Holy Places.

Obviously Italy is well present with Rome and the major cities and their museums. Religious buildings in their glory or in details are numerous but are only a part of the collection.

Main contributors are :

  • Chartres and its cathedral

  • Pilgrimages

  • Lourdes, Lisieux, La Salette, Pontmain, Paris

  • World War I destruction's

  • Paintings and sculptures
