Postcards of the Past


Cambridge University


Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world. There are currently 31 colleges, three of which are for women and two which only admit graduates. Of these 31 colleges, 7 have been founded in the last 50 years or so, and thus, in keeping with our policy of only displaying postcards more than 50 years old, will not appear in these pages. Of the remaining 24, we are in the process of creating web pages, although we do not as yet have postcards of all the colleges.

In conjunction with Zazzle, we have produced an extensive range of gifts, using images from these old postcards. The items available include many reproduction postcards, coffee mugs, Christmas cards, birthday cards, key chains, fridge magnets, watches etc. Most items may be personalised.
