John Hinde: Nostalgic images are not just for Ireland

London and Amsterdam will see exhibition of shots from major landmarks around England and, of course, Ireland.

THE ROSE-TINTED images painted by John Hinde postcards are synonymous with Ireland of the past. An exhibition visiting London and Amsterdam this year will show that the photographer and his team also took retrotastic portraits of Great Britain too.

A caravan park spread out before a bay in Cornwall, Piccadilly at nighttime, an old amusement park at English seaside town Margate in all its pomp and funfair delights: they’re all there.

The photographic arm of the postcard company made its way back out of examinership last year and, inspired by suggestions from readers, created a nostalgic Ireland book and calendar of some of its most famous images to celebrate.

An exhibition of John Hinde photography from Ireland and the UK will be held in the Photographers’ Gallery, London from 1 August to 20 October and at the Unseen Photo Fair in Amsterdam in September.

These are some of the pictures that will be on show:
