Re: Grays real photo cards of London

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?

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.

Apologies to the contributors concerned.

It appears post card 'copyright' has once again become a very contentious & sensitive issue.

Re: Miniature Novels Series Christmas lonely heart card

Nice - the ones I have seen have also been in black and white & appear to have a serrated edge as though they have come from a booklet.... no idea who the publisher is. I believe they are quite common post cards. Many post cards sometime reveal some interesting messages; it's always worth looking at...
