Re: Stehli Freres STF Art cards

A search on ebid found similar items including the Crested Titmouse card illustrated (no 112) - and there is one postally used in 1968 featuring a Lion; suggesting that they published postcards in more recent years? I believe they produced a lot of Flower postcards too...

Re: Why is the Message Forum so quiet?

Yes, no doubt Mike's priority was to get the new look home page up and running, with fine tuning to come. When logging onto the forum (using Firefox) I get security warnings about an unencrypted connection - could some people be turning back at that point? Possibly - this extra layer has been intro...

Re: Publisher Excel Cards

EXCEL Cards I would be grateful for any information about the publisher(s) who produced cards with the Logo EXCEL SERIES. Postal dates are prolific throughout the 1930's. When did they first appear ? Was Excel a distinct publishing company, or the name of an established company's sub-company? Any d...

Re: Why is the Message Forum so quiet?

Nice to hear from you again... welcome to the discussion! I am not convinced that Facebook/Instagram/Twitter/whatsapp etc really provides any in-depth meaning to the hobby of collecting postcards. Sure, lots of people wow at the old images and who wouldn't love them, but where is the research and st...

Re: Why is the Message Forum so quiet?

I really don't know the answer to that question, but I will attempt a reply nevertheless as I feel duty bound - as always! I am a PTA member and see the PTA website and this forum as a one-stop shop for information on the postcard scene certainly here in the UK... but has that happened? - well, yes ...

Re: Hand Painted Postcards

I like the handpainted/homemade postcards too... I don't really collect them, but this one is of the Tower of London and made me chuckle - a bargain at £2.50: http://www.churchpostcardviews.co.uk/images/08_001.jpg - and on the back: http://www.churchpostcardviews.co.uk/images/08_002.jpg I wonder who...

What came first they say; 'the chicken or the egg?' - there are many similarities, true, but this is an easy one to copy for an experienced artist I would say... so who will know!
