Wish You Were Here celebrates and explores the iconic role the postcard has played in connecting people for more than a century and a half.
The British postcard’s history began in 1870 and 2020 marked its 150th anniversary. An innovation of its time, the postcard meant new and faster correspondence through the post. They were used to send secret messages of love, to boost morale for soldiers at war and to boast from holidays near and afar.
Visitors can explore the postcard through history and reflect on its future with themes including romance, First World War correspondence, the Great British seaside, contemporary art and the postcard in a digital age.
