I can, from my time in Ceylon 1953 to 1967, relate to ALL these pictures. I remember Colombo jetty when it was like that I have gone out on launches from that jetty many times to visit ships in the harbour. The Town Hall hasn’t changed any and Galle Face, at least the front, is just as I remember from my time. Peradeniya is much the same. So these are COOL. Not postcards per se. Cigarette Cards — which they used to include in packets. I have found about 240 of these.
