EXPOSITION UNIVERSELLE DE BRUXELLES 1910

SECTION FRANCAISE

PALAIS DE L’AGRICULTURE

Published by

ED L’AIGLE (?)

Ref: 20

 

I have mentioned before that Exhibition postcards have a dedicated following, and this may be because there are so many of them! This one is from 1910.

 

REVERSE SIDE OF ABOVE POSTCARD

 

This has a nice personal cachet applied top left and was posted from Antwerp with the postage stamp being cancelled with an Antwerp wavy-line machine cancellation. This has a nice clean usage.

ORIGINAL STORY SKETCH OF PLUTO

FROM

‘THE POINTER’ 1939

Published by

THE ART GROUP

In their:

DISNEY THE ARCHIVE COLLECTION

Ref: 8783

 

This is one of my favourite series’ and it has some cracking sketches and animated scenes with many I had not previously seen. At first these were quite expensive in the shops, but over the years they have dropped in price and can now be picked up for less than they were originally often sold for.

TORVILL & DEAN

Is ‘Dancing on Ice’ still on television at the moment? I wouldn’t know as I am not a fan of this type of programme. Despite having never watched any episodes of this programme I am aware that it is popular and that Torvill and Dean are judges, although I believe they alternate as head judges, or so I have read.

But, because of this programme I can now add these two postcards to my television themed collection.

THINKING OF RAISING A FAMILY?

TRY RENTAL CHILDREN FIRST!

THE AMERICAN POSTCARD CO., INC, NEW YORK

Ref: 1244

 

I have always liked this postcard and I think it has a very funny concept. The photograph used here is obviously an older one.

QUEEN ELIZABETH II

STATE VISIT TO GERMANY 1965

OFFICIAL COMMEMORATIVE VISIT POSTCARDS (PLAIN BACKED)

 

When the Queen visited Germany in 1965 a range of commemorative plain backed postcards were produced to receive the various special cancellations that were issued for each of the locations. This means that today we can build up collections of these cards where the cards themselves are the same, or in similar groups, but the cancels are all different. I show a selection here

SPRING STAMPEX

2019

Selection of Cards bought at event

(Part One)

 

I bought a lot of cards at Stampex, something which is not unusual for me, and I realised that if I was to write up every one of them in the normal style of the entries on my webpage then it would take weeks, if not months to depict even a small selection of them. So, I have decided to bypass the normal individual comprehensive write up for this selection and to therefore treat this section more as a gallery than as a text lead selection.

I buy individual postcards for several different reasons:

1 – The picture depicted on the card (probably the reason most postcards are normally bought)

2 – The design of the reverse side, or because of an image also shown on the reverse side (a far less common reason to end up with a card for, but it happens)

3 – The stamp or stamps used to post the card

4 – The cancellation, cachet or other mark which appears on the card

5 – the signature of someone which appears on the card

If you look at the selection of cards shown below then at least four of the above reasons were why these came into my collection:
