c.1910 (?) GD&D "Star" Series five real photo cards - two with plain backs - & two coloured cards all featuring aspects of Working Life in London, each affixed to the reverse of slightly larger prints of the original photographs that have handstamps & printer's/publisher's notations on the reverse, one card with adhesion on the face & another with corner fault, otherwise fine to very fine. Rare postcard proofs . Ex Keith Harrison. [The remarkable aspect of all the original photos is that they have been expertly highlighted/captioned in India ink & Chinese white! This explains the "artistic" appearance of the issued cards, & addresses the "Picture Postcard Values" comment: "The printing leaves much to be desired"!]
