The dates of publication for the postcards are unknown. In general a publication date of after the start of the war in 1914 has been inferred. Some of the postcards feature images which are dated 1917. For these a publication date for the postcard of after 1917 has been inferred.
Ownership/custodial history
The postcards were among papers discovered in a building on North Great George's Street, Dublin which had been taken over by the Civil Service Staff Officers Association. Paddy (Pat) O'Shea, General Secretary and President of the Association, salvaged the postcards from the offices during the 1960s. After his death, the postcards passed to Mr. O'Shea's son, Rory O'Shea, who donated them to the National Folklore Collection at University College Dublin in 2016.
