This website brings together a collection of postcards depicting Settle[2], a small market town in North Yorkshire.

The postcard images tell us about how the town has changed during the 20th Century and the postcards themselves reflect the changes in industry, communication, social classes and the increase of leisure time.

This information can be deciphered by looking at the use of the postcards and the messages they contain; the publishers and their place in a national and local industry; the processes used to take the photograph and make it in to a postcard show developments in technology; and a wider social history in which all of these aspects play a role stem from the Industrial Revolution.
