Note: Curator's note: It is likely that Bell collected some of these postcards during his 1907 trip to East Asia (he went via North America), but there are also postcards from 1933 and a 1937 trip to Budapest. There are also a small number of photographs that feature Bell, which have subsequently been turned into postcards. It is unclear how many of these postcards came originally from photographs.
