Re: ARE THESE POSTCARDS?

Regretfully not a postcard... these are usually designed for sending a letter from abroad. The idea is that the folded paper sheet will act as a cheap missive with a message to send home to loved ones... many I have seen have pre-paid postage on them.

Nice designs

Re: Valentine and Wrench

I don't believe that the two companies Wrench and Valentine worked together. It is more likely that they may have both been approached by the original photographer to publish the image. Or that one company sold on the image to the other. Both these scenarios were commonplace at the time... major pub...

Re: Copies of Postcards

Yes, there was another thread which was moved out of the public eye while the wording is analyzed for possible libel.

I believe they are quite common post cards. Many post cards sometime reveal some interesting messages; it's always worth looking at...

A R Bott of Orchest...
