Thanks to the popularity of picture postcards over the last century or so, we are able to enjoy a wide range of images of our favourite places. For a spell, particularly 1920s-1950s, the type of novelty postcards shown above were very popular. These would have a generic image on the front - often something colourful and designed to appeal to the masses (eg the rose or the kitten). The same front picture would be used for multiple locations, as the place name would be added on later, as would the internal concertinaed images. There would be a flap cut into the front cover and when this was opened, a folded series of small images would pull out (see below). Normally black and white, there would be around a dozen different views of the location in question. Quality of the images was variable but could be pretty good, so these cards were great value for money...shame they are not still around today.
