We received an unusual acquisition at the end of 2016 of about 100 postcards produced by the British Museum. They date from the first half of the 20th century and cover the subject of natural history. This display was inspired by the bird postcards in the collection which appear alongside books from the Whipple collections that cover ornithology.
