Because tourism has been so important to the area for so long, we are extremely fortunate that there are an immense number of postcards of all facets of the places and people of Oban.
These are invaluable in recording the growth and changes around the locality.
There are many of these being sold on ebay, and taking details from the adverts provides a useful resource.
There are also private collections around the area, and the country, and hopefully their owners will share with us in time.
There have been several local publishers of Postcards.
