Usually a person collects a theme. My subjects have been the Coromandel Peninsula and its towns, schools and hospitals around New Zealand and Auckland suburbs.
Dealers set up their tables at collector/antique fairs. They also sell online at Trademe where most of mine came from. It need not always be an expensive hobby. The more recent cards are still going very cheaply and these will in time become sort after. If the hobby does interest you, try to always buy good quality cards.
I've chosen some to show you today of Onehunga, Auckland in the early days. I'm sure there were lots of postcards of Onehunga on sale in their day but I've only these three, sad, I'd like more!
