Sunday, February 14, Hop Picking One of the articles that I read in my first copy of the SSG news letter in April was a very interesting article written by Brian Sulman about an order form postcard for a series of Salmon postcards on the subject of Hop Picking. On the obverse side of the postcard was the name and address of Mr. On the reverse side of the card was a list of 8 hop picking postcards that could be ordered with space for the name and address of the person ordering the postcards. Unfortunately I have never come across this postcard or any like it. The cards listed on the reverse of the postcard were: Dipping and Carting Hop Poles. Hop Garden showing Oasthouses in the Distance. Hop Garden, Picking the Hops. Hop Pickers at Work. Carting the Hops in Pokes to the Oasthouse.
Sea and Sky – Vintage Postcards by Raphael Tuck My vintage postcards blog entry today is centred around two artist drawn, oilette postcards by Raphael Tuck. This is a really beautiful card with a textured finish. Mine is creased unfortunately, but in a strange way it seems to add to the beauty of the card. The postcard is not postally used but I would guess it dates somewhere between and What I like best about this card is the vivid colors, particular the reflection of the ship’s sail in the water.
It’s not in the “Sea and Sky” series but would fit well.
Real-photo postcards (sometimes called RPPCs) are the result of developing a negative onto photo paper with a pre-printed postcard backing. Classic real-photo cards feature a variety of subjects, from mundane small- town street views to images of animals to photos that captured important political moments or terrifying natural disasters.

Salmon produced morale-boosting patriotic postcards. The firm, which employs 50 staff, has until now fought off competition from the digital camera by producing larger, glossier photographs and updating its stunning photographic views of Britain. It has also added postcards of Royal occasions and tourist attractions such as Changing the Guard. But with shrinking markets and no one in the family wishing to carry on the business, closure is planned.
Postcards are the fingerprint of the lives of ordinary people. They give us insights into what really went on, not just where they went, but what they did, wore, the shops they went to. Britain’s oldest postcard publishers in Kent is closing.

Antique Halloween Postcards Condition One of the first things an appraiser or collector will notice about your postcard is its condition. Cards in fine shape, with no discoloration, foxing, tears, or other damage fetch the highest prices. Some cards had flocking, glitter or gilding, and those sections of the card need to have as much of the original material as possible. A card which looks perfect could be a reproduction, so be careful when buying.
You could go bicycling , but to go out canoeing was the thing. Most boaters accessorized them with pillows, lanterns, and picnicking supplies. Some even customized their canoes with built-in phonographs —floating boom-boxes for the paddle set. Or she might read poetry to him. In the lower left-hand corner, two boaters take advantage of canoe luxuries like reclining seats and phonograph music. The resulting canoe had cedar decks and an oak hull, and at 15 feet long was just short enough to fit into a train car.
To help publicize the freedoms of solo canoe travel, MacGregor chose popular routes through central Europe, like the Danube River, where he experimented with his new craft and discussed its merits with locals. The following year, he published a book about his experiences, espousing the many virtues of travel by canoe. The concept of canoes as recreational vehicles was cemented.
Regattas and informal competitions spread throughout the 19th century, and a centrally organized sporting group, the American Canoe Association, was founded in

When Professor McConnell is found murdered on the golf course the next day—gunned down in broad daylight by an unseen killer—no one can fathom a motive, let alone find a suspect. Just as Harry and her furry cohorts begin nosing into the case, however, a homeless UVA alum confesses to the crime.

In the Post Office changed its rules and allowed: The message was to be written on the left-hand side of the back and the address on the right-hand side of the back. Great Britain was the first country to allow this practice. From around September onwards, postcard manufacturers began to issue cards with a line drawn down the middle of the back to show where the message and address should be written. These cards soon replaced the earlier ones with ‘undivided backs’.
Both are views of Edinburgh, measuring 7. Both were posted in Edinburgh on 22 April with a 1d stamp on each. Postage Rates in the UK If the cards have been posted, the postmark date can establish the latest possible date that a postcard was produced – sometimes the date is not legible, so the stamps used can be a guide Postage rates were sometimes printed on the backs of early UK postcards.

In fact, 90% of postcards, no matter how old, fall into a price bracket ranging from pence to five that sell cheaply include the categories of relatively modern issues, art reproductions, deckle-edged greetings cards, scenic views that have changed little and poorly printed comics.
Fiji was thoroughly disrupted by World War 2, and though of course postcards were sold from numerous outlets during that period, there was relatively less original photography produced by commercial firms. During the late s this picked up momentum and during the s much new work appeared, also utilising contemporary printing techniques.
With the advent of wide-bodied jet aircraft in the s, tourism burgeoned and created a great demand for souvenirs, particularly postcards. As well, colour technology improved, and there were a great number of new colour postcards produced. Many of the cards below were photographed by Roland R. Bolton Stinson, the founder of the original Stinsons Studios. The Stinson brothers were perhaps the most important of the post-war commercial photographers, as distinct from the unrivalled official photographer, Rob Wright.
Like Rob, they recorded the scenery of Fiji and the life of the people of all ethnicities. Roland was the principal photographer for Stinsons during the s and early s, after which he left Fiji and moved to Perth, Western Australia, to live. He was also for a number of years prominent in local government politics and finally retired to the Gold Coast of Queensland. The post – World War II Stinson Studios photographs, like those of John Bolton Stinson in an earlier time, often go beyond being mere “postcard snapshots” and provide an aesthetically and culturally aware image of Fiji in the last days of its colonial era.
During the s and s, they were also local pioneers in using the emergent colour film technology, particularly Kodak’s Ektachrome positive transparency film, which was at that time regarded as the best for producing print reproductions. Scenery “Village by the Sea, Fiji”. No publisher, possibly Stinsons.
Answers on a postcard Brothers Charles and Harry Salmon, the fifth generation of the family to run the firm, said the popularity of social media had had a huge impact on the business. People are also tending to take shorter holidays, meaning they are likely to have arrived home long before their postcards, the brothers – joint managing directors of the firm – said. As a result the business was no longer viable, they said.
As a result they were announcing “a proposal to withdraw from publishing”.

J — Reverse Now consider the above postcard. How can this be? Most of us are familiar with the magic that can be accomplished with PhotoShop and other software programs that can be used to alter a digital photograph in ways both major and minor. Thus, all of the flags in both the day view and the night view almost certainly have been manually added. American flags are more impressive in the day view, and the replacement of eight of the American flags with pennants gives the night view more splashes of color.
It is also possible that the auditorium had no flags at all, and that the flags — flagpoles and all — were added to the postcard view to supply more visual interest. One would have to reference contemporary real photo images of the auditorium to verify. Keep in mind that until the advent of the photochrome postcard, all view postcards were either printed in black and white, or black and white that was colorized.
The selection and placement of color was under the complete control of the printer, as was the design, even when the design was based on a photographic original. Some postcards are more amenable to a nighttime version than others. Postcards that lend themselves to a night view are ones that would typically have light or illuminated elements after dark.
Too, light would be shown emanating from each of the windows or portholes of the ship. Just one more observation concerning vintage postcard night views.
