Five large albums of Photochrom cards from many different series & in a wide variety of styles including artist cards & real photo types, the vast majority are Celesques (most of which are numbered on the face) on the characteristically stout board, subjects include Beaches, the Lakes District, Yorkshire, Isle of Wight, Channel Islands etc, also some overseas subjects notably Holy Land, condition variable but generally fine to very fine. A wonderful basis for serious expansion at modest cost. Ex Derek Pocock.

In a 1998 article in "Picture Postcard Monthly", Brian Lund stated "Because a majority [of Celesques] feature tourist locations & rural views they do not always find favour with collectors...They deserve better..." & mounted a spirited defence of what are well produced & generally attractive cards. We agree wholeheartedly with Brian. The thematic content is very high, with an abundance of Churches, Bridges, Villages, Welsh Costumes, Events etc, even a few WWI military cards. In addition, they lend themselves to being collected by series or County/Region. (Qty 1300 approx)
