I have no idea what something like this is worth... but what an amazing collection! I just find it sad to think that these photo's have become lost to the families of the people in the photographs!

 

I suppose from a historical point of view these items will be of some value to the "right" people.

 

Good luck!!

Boy, would I love to get my hands on the African stuff... just to scan and post on my website. hint, hint, wink, wink :D

 

In my opinion, a used postcard is "worth" much more than an unused 'card, especially if the writing says something pertinent to the day.
