For every collector, there comes a period when it is necessary to think about the purpose of the collection. In the fifteenth year since the start of serious collecting, I began to reflect on the purpose of my collection. I concluded that generations are changing and there is no one to transmit the local history besides the state museum and archives. To preserve information about the past, I would need to create my own museum of Perm postcard history, which would collect all the information found relating to the topic.
As of December 2019, the collection of the Museum of the History of Perm Postcards has about three thousand exhibits, which represent the entire history of the development of postcards in the Perm Territory.
The collection of the museum consists of the following sections: picture cards of the city of Perm; picture cards of cities and settlements within the Perm Territory; postcards, invitations, and congratulations to Perm publishing houses; postcards, invitations, and congratulations to Perm organizations and enterprises; postcards, invitations, and congratulations to the authorities of the Perm Territory and local authorities of the Perm Territory; autographs of famous people in the history of the Perm Territory.
