Re: Expired Copyright

Dear Moonraker, Thank you for the reply. This is one reason I truly hate copyright, it is never clear cut. The museum I know has the original negatives, I know that for a fact. I am just a little paranoid, I know another author who didn't worry too much, he got caught and had to pay. Mind you that w...

Expired Copyright

Dear All, I know there are many topics on copyright here, but there is one question that I have not seen asked or answered. I realise I may have missed it and/or am being dumb. I have a postcard that is over 70 years old, some are 90 or 100 years old. I therefore assume no copyright exists on them. ...

Re: Postcard copyright issues

Dear Roy, Thank you for the information. The contact details are the same as I have so not sure why they have not bothered to reply to me. Anyway, I have not yet looked at finding the original photographers, I don't see that as being easy at all and wish you all the best of luck with it. Should I fi...

Re: Postcard copyright issues

Dear Roy, I ahve a couple of J Arthur Dixon Postcards I would like to reproduce, all from the 80's I think. I was interested to read your reply: J Arthur Dixon, all production and copyright reproductions ceased March 2012 - John Hinde (Cornwall) Ltd. Can you tell me where you got this from? I have b...

Re: ANother unidentified publisher

Hi deanosaur1972, You are a star. despite having been collecting postcards, Newbury and Thatcham, for a few years, I still come across things like this that I do not know. Certainly very useful and will help in tracking down the publisher. Afraid the bit in the diamond, even on the original, is diff...

ANother unidentified publisher

Hi All, Got another unidentified publisher. No details on either side of the postcard, but the reverse has in the lower left corner, in red, a diamond followed by "5128 . . 1927". I know the latter is not a year as the postmark is 1923. It is marked as Made in England. For some reason I ca...

Re: The "Nash" Series

Hello Linda, Sorry for the delay. I now have a couple of these postcards. The latest one dates to 1921. They all have reference numbers on them, 4449-298 for example. They are all photographs of views of Newbury, Berkshire. I did do a good search around on the net and as you point out the only ones ...

The "Nash" Series

Dear All, I have a postcard that I am trying to identify the publisher of. It dates to 1929 or before and has The "Nash" Series printed on the reverse with the number - 4449-298. I am finding lots of other cards on the web identified as the nash series but nothing as to who the publisher i...

Re: Postcard Producers

So far no luck with a lot of this. I had been given a few leads for Tuck, but they either turn into dead ends or I am still waiting for replies for various companies/people (i.e. Hallmark - http://www.companycheck.co.uk/company/00930345 ). Some like Frith and Collier are easy, but these ones, nothin...

Re: Postcard Producers

Thanks for the help. Tuck is one of the few where there is some information. I can find most of what you mention, I just don't see if they are still going today or if they closed down. Would have thought it would be easy to find if they were still going so have assumed they are not. Out of interest ...

Postcard Producers

Dear All, I am producing a book on Thatcham and am trying to locate details of some of the manufacturers of postcards. I have tried my hardest but can't find much out about them, or anything in some cases. Two Salmon and Judges are easy enough, just a shame they do not respond to email. Will try pho...
