Guernsey is the most western of the Channel Islands, with a proud maritime history spanning many centuries. Only 25 square miles, the island nevertheless has a great variety of landscapes, from the rugged cliffs in the south to the low-lying dunes in the north. The ten parishes, each with their own unique community spirit, are home to over 60,000 people. This grows greatly during the summer as visitors come to experience the island's quiet country lanes and the bustling streets of St Peter Port. Historically, Guernsey people have made their mark not just on the sea, but in thriving stone industries, agriculture and horticulture, and in recent years, international banking. Guernsey The Postcard Collection takes the reader on a nostalgic journey back through Guernsey's past in a vibrant selection of old picture postcards offering an illuminating pictorial history of this great island.
