We describe our experiences of designing a digital community display with members of a rural community. These experiences are highlighted by the development of printed and digital postcard features for the Wray Photo Display, a public photosharing display designed with the community, which was trialled during a popular village fair where both local residents and visitors interacted with the system. This trial allowed us to examine the relative popularity and differences in usage between printed and digital postcard, and offer insights into the uses of these features with community-generated content and potential problems encountered.
