I have a collection of old postcards, all from Shetland.
I started collecting them about 45 years ago and there are some beauties among them, so I thought I'd share some of them here.
It's amazing to see how much some places have changed. My original plan was to try and get new pictures from the same viewpoint as the old postcards, then I moved to Norway and that plan got put on the back burner. But here's a couple of examples of then and now.
Scalloway seen from the east sometime in the region of 1900.
Similar scene in 2003
And Scalloway from the west, sometime in the late 1800sShetlopedia
