This is, of course, despite the fact that this something…

Postcards from the Middle East

I recently began a project at the British Museum, where I am a curator, to collect old and new postcards from across the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia.

Each card is numbered, registered, scanned and goes onto our Collections Online section of our website, and anyone can use…
