Lilywhite postcards

Post by semlyn » Mon Nov 11, 2019 1:08 pm

I have just purchased a used postcard post-dated 1950 of a view from the top of Newton (Porthcawl) Church tower.
I am led to believe however that this card dates from the 1930s.
I have been unable to find any specific information regarding Lilywhite postcards on-line and wonder if anyone can supply more details regarding their issues.
It has the notation Ntn 7 on the front bottom part of the picture.
Many thanks.

The firm of Lilywhite Ltd., Halifax was destroyed by fire in 1931 which may account for your theory that your image dates from the 1930s. The firm's founder went on to work for Raphael Tuck in the 1930s too...

Thanks for the comments.
I should have mentioned that the imprint on the card states:- Publishers,Lilywhite (1932)Ltd, ,Sowerby Bridge so this must be the new company established after the fire.
The notation on the front of the card I mentioned in my previous posting "Ntn 7" perhaps indicates that there were at least 6 other illustrations of the village.
