Founding editor Ian Boyle created simplonpc.co.uk to showcase his passion for passenger shipping and his wider transport interests. He travelled extensively, took thousands of photographs, and built up a fine collection of postcards. The site was developed over a 20 year period and now contains over 2,300 pages and 148,000 images. The sale of Simplon-published postcards ceased some years ago.
The website was taken over in August 2023 by a new editor whose aim is to maintain it as an accessible permanent online archive. Only the Home page has been altered.Family of websites
