Grays real photo cards of London

Post by Dave43 » Thu Jul 04, 2019 12:35 pm

I may have posted this before but I have 4 of these, unused, I was trying to make a list of them but have only found another 4 with another 1 possible, like the Wrench cards they show different views of London streets to the usual run of the mill. It won't let me attach scans at present, says file is too large but they're B&W RP type, quite distinctive 1920's/30's, the back says Grays real photo series and where the stamp goes it says Printed in Italy, they are numbered No. 1 to at least 50 (Southampton Row)

Be great to see the list of what you have...

An interesting publisher... the IXL series produced London scenes, both coloured and real photo, as well as printed scenes of East Anglia.

But who is this publisher, I wonder?

:?
