Postcard book; a book of black and white photographic postcards of Saint-Omer, France. Sent home to Otago during World War One, by Charles J Hayward.

Inscribed inside the front cover is a short message: "This is a very pretty village not far from Hazebrouck. I have been here many times. It is not yet within range of the German guns.
