Recently purchased a lot of 50+ postcards. Wondering if these are any good?!

Depends upon in what sense you mean "good". The postcards themselves are mainly standard views or greeting cards from the period, which are ordinarily worth pennies. I can't speak for the stamps or postmarks. The card of the men on horseback is the type that can attract more interest. Enjoy!

May I also recommend this excellent site?

I'm not a postcard collector, but as Geoff says...I think real photo cards are more highly prized than colorized lithographs. The same applies in the world of stereoviews.

The publisher of the RP (Real Photo) card is unknown but the card was published on AZO paper.

I should also note that on a lot of these coloured postcards, the colours were 'brushed' in. On some series of postcards I have come across will have the same exact image but the colours were brushed in to make it look either like day or night and in some instances clouds can be added to make it look like a storm may be approaching. From what I can see in here, the coloured cards in the hobby of deltiology would be referred to a 'colour litho cards'. Hope this helps?

That first one marked Sydney. Neat looking bridge for the times. Definately not Sydney Nova Scotia, or Sidney British Columbia Canada, so definately Australia.

The postmark dated Feb 26, 1906 or 8, hard to make out, is from Tasmania. An Island just off the south coast of Australia

That is the Como Railway Bridge, Sydney Australia.
Photographic Postcards generally fetch $10-$20 in West Australia, if they feature local content, Tasmania Whom knows?

The Postcard is missing the stamps, hence a negative.

The family Bramich, is a very well known identity from Tasmania's early days,
Mr. Bramich a saddler, amongst many other things, and passed away 1940.

Railway themed postcards are always popular.

The real photo of the people on horseback is by far the most interesting and most valuable of the group. It is postmarked at General Grant National Park, CA, (post office open 1910 -1940) now known as General Grant Grove within the larger Kings Canyon National Park.

3193zd, when ever did you hear a boy called Marion. Some change allright! Oh yes, 1911 to now, things sure have changed. She must want to buy a postcard and stamp to mail it back to Mama so she could have it for her postcard collection!

Whew!
thank you Ikey Pikey,
I knew there was one fella, I gave up, after searching Paul Newman, and Marlon Brando, I knew I had read of one famous actor with a name of Marion.
