About the Malton Postcard Collection
The majority of our postcards are of Malton and Old Malton and date from around 1900 to the 2000’s. These include the main shopping thoroughfares and street scenes, churches, schools, river scenes, the railway and events.
Examples are arranged here in 'galleries'. Click on any one to see an enlarged version and associated description. The collection has duplicates of many of these cards and dates given are taken from the earliest postmark.
