Re: Wiltshire publishers: Bott, Fred Wright, Fred West

I have details of some Wiltshire postcard publishers of the 1910s, including T L Fuller, Alfred Vowles and Albert Marrett of Shrewton, but there are several other, less prolific, ones about whom I'm a little curious: Little is known about Albert Marrett’s local rival, Fred West. A R Bott of Orchest...

A postcard of Stonehenge has just sold for £52 on eBay! As an iconic national monument it has featured in many, many PCs, and rather too often modern colour cards are listed on eBay.
