To help commemorate New Zealand's First World War Centenary I will share with you 100 postcards from my private collection.
These include real photographic images, artistic depictions and some handwritten messages of heartache and sorrow.

Barrage Gardens, Cairo
c.1916. Convalescent New Zealand soldiers and medical staff stood beside New Zealand Expeditionary Force ambulances at the Barrage Gardens, approximately 20 miles from Cairo in Egypt. This group portrait photographic postcard was taken on a day's outing at the gardens whilst enjoying a picnic.
