UK postcards were produced by printing firm Stewarts of Edinburgh and early postcards
were pictures of famous landmarks, scenic views, photographs or drawings of celebrities
and so on. With steam locomotives providing fast and affordable travel, the seaside
became a popular tourist destination, and generated its own souvenir-industry:
