Rotary Photo Co. Sample Book

Post by Des_Beechey »

I am in Sydney, Australia, and am working on postcards sold in Tasmania, Australia, in 1910. I am looking for a copy of the Sample Book of the Rotary Photo Co for 1910 or thereabouts.

I have found copies of the 1910 correspondence from a retailer in Tasmania to The Rotary Photo Co. requesting printing of 24 different postcard views of Tasmania.

The letter said "This order is made up from The Sample Book you supplied us with in January last." It went on to ask for 12 postcards in Style A at 34/- per thousand and 12 more in Style E at 36/- per thousand.

I would really like to see a copy of the Sample Book to know what was Style A and Style E.

Thanks in anticipation,
