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"!] (Qty 14 items)
