A little history ! 0 comments

What better way to delve into the past than with old postcards? These speaking relics of the past always allow us to learn a little more about the present. In this article, we will present striking before and after comparisons of old and recent photographs of Guadeloupe.

But first, a bit of history!

The first postcards of Guadeloupe appeared around 1901, with Phos being the first known publisher. Throughout the years, different publishers succeeded one another, each adding their own touch, resulting in numerous black and white and color prints that capture different eras. Around 1900 different postcards are referenced in the departmental archives, and we invite you to discover some of them.
