Exclusive anniversary designs commissioned, and created by Harry Dinnage

Supporting many charitable and preservation projects including The Brighton Bus Preservation Society

Our domain name keywords Transport Postcards highlight our interest in transport and the traditional use of postcards that were in the heyday of them as of means of communication when post could be sent and received even on the same day in local communities, and those real photo postcards have become highly collectable for those wishing to look back on a street in the early days of transport, be that of trams or horse buses, even as far along as the colour cards in the sixties of seventies. The term postcard is still used as well for the double-weight photographic material that collectors like that are not actually have a postcard divided back but are just a photographic image aimed at collectors of images of their taken interest. During the nineties we started to publish our own series of whats now called "modern postcards" being a useable, collectable glossy photographic or line-art image that somehow reflects an interest in UK transport, from tramways, railways and buses, some of which have generated proceeds for the preservation movement. The series is quite small, yet will continue over time, with an emphasis on publishing more of the photographs from our picture library based on the negatives and slides in our collection, with some unused commission artwork still on hand.

Introduction to Dinnages of Brighton

Welcome to Dinnages, a Brighton, Hove & Sussex family run, hobby based business, commenced in 1989, through postal sales, ten years retailing, and progression to online sales, providing its customers with items such as photographs, postcards, books, models, display cabinets (during our retail years), transport DVD films and whatever ephemera comes our way. Since the introduction of our free to operate 'shopping cart' system created in 2007, The Dinnages site now has this proper online integrated secure store, many of which are exclusive to us as publishers or distributors. From our former shopping pages written on the fly just in notepad, with simple individual Buy-Now buttons, all items migrated along with new releases and especially a few photographs, to our secure online shop. Many 'shopping cart' systems cost a monthly fee or hundreds of pounds to purchase outright, therefore we do our best to pass on our lower operating costs to our customers through a lower fixed flat rate postage and packing charge unlike many other major online stores. This online shop was created during mid 2007 in order to bring all items under one easy to find area, while an upgrade was needed late 2018. The process of adding new items to the shop is a very time consuming business, however less 'technical' than the former pages, with the 'cart' system, which does however take some time to keep updated, is worth the effort in comparision to fixed monthly fees that other store owners have on top of the merchant charges per sale. Those of you who eagerly await our photograph thumbnails instead of just the detailed listings will in time be able to select a desired operating company & locate all the views across all sections of our Picture Library, being the primary reason to change to a 'cart' system to sell more of the photograph library online & postally. Previous attempts at 'approval' sales have been fraught with problems of missing packages and either no payment or selections never to be returned.

Please take time to browse both sections of our site then if you have any queries, please use the Contact Us form on our new home page. Looking towards our other outlets, Dinnages as we are, have always sold our transport & other collectables, at stalls and specialist markets, in the main being events centered around commercial vehicles, buses, trams, or railways. Between the latter end of 1990 and until the turn of the century, what started off as 'Dinnages Diecast, (that was the good lady Wife's idea), being initially traders of just diecast model cars and commercial vehicles, we soon purchased collections that came through the shop doors of books, Videos and photographs on a frequent basis. This led to becoming 'Dinnages of Brighton' until we commenced publishing our own postcards (1998) and photographs from our historic Picture Library beginings around 1993-94, hence we use our later trading name relating to our longer term aim as a publisher. The postal Photo Newsletter with its monthly offerings started in April 2009 promoting the 'Dinnages Picture Library' which quickly helped to build up the range of printed images available, although that is currently suspended until we create a catalogue.
With details on our other places around the internet provided below, we can easily be found on most search engines using just our short trading name, Dinnages, although to avoid looking past unrelated links about Ford cars and such like also based in Sussex, we suggest using another keyword more related to commercial transport or public services such as Southdown or just Brighton. We have no connection with the well known dealership of Sussex, although we may have distant family links with the former owners that actually were 'Dinnage', as the original toy shop & bike shop was a Jim Dinnage! Obviously these days they just use the trading name for car sales, therefore us as a family team of Dinnages we have no conflict selling nothing similar but maybe in miniature.
A brief aside from the sales, with some self-taught skills writing web pages in the late ninties, we have provided help and assistance creating them for a variety of people and organisations usually non-profit making, and from 2016 the creation and admin of no less than sixteen Facebook Pages, with some now run by the editors on their own, with very little further input from us once getting them established. There are a few around as in all walks of life, that will not link or mention us for our enthusiasm in the free provision of Pages, yet we strive to maintain a solid ongoing base for sales of interesting items towards transport and indeed carry on providing some of our proceeds to charitable concerns and preservation projects as mentioned above.
