Great Britain Displays

The pages in this section link to scans of displays on various subjects of Great Britain philately, which have been submitted as a resource for members of the GBPS. The introduction page for each display may be read by anyone, but to view the displays themselves you must be logged in. The page images themselves are resized to fit approximately into the height of the average screen, but if you click on one of them it will open the full size image, whatever size that may be.

A letter "w" or "d" after the number of sheets indicates that the display is on "wide" or "double" size sheets respectively (although some displays on normal size sheets may include the occasional double width or larger sheet too). Many displays are in addition available for download in a single file -- these are listed in the "Files" column with an icon giving the file format, typically PDF. (If a display is only available as a download, the page count will be shown in grey italics.)

The examples here obviously represent only a selection of possible material; further scanned displays are actively solicited. Please see the 'how to' page or contact the for further details.
