Historic picture postcards – can you help?

Stuart Antrobus is currently writing captions for a major collection of historic picture postcards (four albums) for Bedfordshire Heritage Library and is having trouble identifying the following photos [see attachments]. He would be grateful for any ideas which could be followed up and verified, preferably with a documentary source. What do they show? Where in the county? Any further information?
