Honfleur in the 1900s

Entrance of the Harbor & ship to Le Havre

Honfleur is the ideal city for postcards collecting. The sight has always been among the best in France. And even in the early years of the postcard, tourists used to come to visit Honfleur. Therefore, postcards are nowadays easy to find with good subjects.

Tourists could arrive by ship from Le Havre or Southampton, or more likely by train, but it was also possible to take the bus to Trouville, Deauville and Villers: this was a real expedition at that time. 

With all these subjects, a collection can be organized as follows:

  1. Honfleur and its streets

  • Street of the Republic

  • Dolphin street

  • Gambetta Street

  • Other streets
