Made from original antique photos of China
Out of the veritable hoard of original photos of China and the Chinese during the historic period of the late Qing dynasty until around 1950 that have been collected both inside and, in particular, outside of China, Beijing Postcards chooses especially interesting ones and makes them into beautiful black and white postcards. Before going to print, each and every postcard undergoes a thorough examination of its attributes e.g. the historical period it reflects, particular events featured, and any specific cultural trademarks it displays. Every postcard is accompanied by a well-researched comment on the back, concerning both the photo itself as well as Chinese culture and history. We aim to give both the buyer and the final recipient of our postcards a little story to broaden his or her knowledge of China and its people.
