Cambridge Postcards from the Past

In this section we share our Community Postcard Collection where we feature some of our old postcard views of Cambridge from years gone by. Click on a gallery for larger images and more information. For some of the postcards you can also see what the city looks like today by hovering over the image, though the same view point might not have been currently possible.

These galleries use html5 animation so you will need the latest version of your browser to view them properly.
