Hertfordshire Post Cards

Post Cards with  a Distinctive Frame


.It is planned to add additional examples to this page

Many different frames became popular in the period before the First World War, and the same frame turns up being used by different "local" publishers, who presumably used the same printer. Iit should be possible to date cards by the frame used

This page is currently used to bring different examples together and will be developed at a later date.
