Advent Calendar 2020: Winter Wonderland
For our 2020 Advent Calendar, we will be sharing snowy and wintery scenes from our Photographic Collections each day leading up to Christmas.
Snow covered North Street, St Andrews, 1891 (ID: JV-14203-B). A coloured postcard from the James Valentine Photographic Collection.
Valentines of Dundee produced prints and then postcards of topographical views for the emerging tourist market from the 1860s until the 1960s.
The area on the right is where the University’s College Gate building is now located.
Coloured postcards were printed using three coloured and one black printing blocks to produce the desired colours.
