Canal Postcards

One of my hobbies is collecting postcards, not very exciting but they dont take up much room and they are cheap(ish). Postcards of canals are a good way of seeing how the canals have changed over time. They also show that the canals have been tourist attactions for over 100 years. Wigan Pier and Bingley 5 Rise are the most popular views. I am yet to find a postcard of the Burnlesy Embankment. Real photographs showing barges on the canal are the most expensive ones. Prices range from less than £1 up to £30
