There are really nice features: a search brings up a little results box with thumbnails and sentences extracted from the posts containing the relevant term hit-highlighted (as in the screen shot). The posts themselves can be viewed classically (chronologically) or as a mosaic (of images with titles which appear when moused over) or as flipcards. It is a site which is fun to dip into for fascinating snippets of information but is also a serious research tool. One of the JJ volunteers found the site while cataloguing South African War postcards.
There is also a glossary of postcard terminology.
