Card showing Saint Peter Port, the capital and main city of the British Crown dependency of Guernsey in the Channel Islands, off the coast of Normandy, that has been settled since pre-Roman times. Saint Peter Port was home to Victor Hugo after his exile from France for publishing political treatises against Emperor Napoleon III.

The card was, unfortunately, not sent through the Guernsey postal system, but rather the UK Royal Mail, and sports an unglamourous postage meter stamp.


  1. Hello there, thanks for your comment on my last blog update. It was indeed a great trip. As a result of your comment, I have just discovered your great postcard blog. Sorry, but I just never came across it before. You have some great postcards , perhaps I can add to your collection. It would be great if we could swap a card or two. If interested drop me a line at and we can set it up.Either way, I'll be tuned in to your blog from now on.
    Take care,

    1. Hi Glen!
