Re: Arthur W Hobart aerial photographer

Cornishman serves Penzance, W Briton Truro, I will have to look somewhere else. H...

Re: Arthur W Hobart aerial photographer

Thanks for that, sounds like him, Prah was in Kerrier then, Dave (Sorry I dislike paying for info on web, don't belong to anything, am I alone in finding web increasingly unhelpful nowadays, its all advertising, it was mostly history in old days?!)

Re: To eBay or not to eBay?

I always reckon e bay is for "chancers" Delcampe for "collectors" (incidentally make sure you get into "International" loads more stuff on there, I have had few problems dealing with Europe)

Re: Albums and Auctions

someone has prob already said this but a lotta people get old empty albums and fill them with rubbish, it's prob best to buy the singles you want, like browse on Delcampe rather than buy job lots, which reminds me, what can I do with all these cards I bought and don't want!?

Re: Fairs or online

I think you shouldn't rule out any way of buying (unless you have not got a computer!) certainly support fairs and don't rule out junk shops etc, I found some interesting cards the other day! But I look on line most evenings, dunno what for, I can't afford all I might want, but you never know what y...
