There are approaching 1,800 items, a mixed collection of holiday postcards, social and local history and postcard sized family photographs including World War I cards.

The collection was first accessioned as postcards in the 1970s but some items were originally recorded as photographs before the 1970s. The collection is recorded in the Modes database with around a further 400 cards added to the database since 2007. Other than the World War I cards, most cards are rarely displayed.
