I have been collecting postcards for well over 20 years now.
I currently collect cards from the Hastings publisher Shoesmith and Etheridge (S&E),
and have compiled a checklist (updated July 2009). If you are able to add to the
list, then please let me know? S&E went out of business in the 1960’s, and I am also
trying to find out more about the company. If you know what happened to them, or
have any information, then please email or ring me?
Also on the list are cards by the artist AR Quinton and published by Salmon of Sevenoaks,
especially those produced on the Isle of Wight, Kent and Sussex. I’m not planning
on collecting all of his output - just haven’t got the time!! Here is the list in
Perth in Scotland is also an interest (family connections), as are the small villages
in and around Hastings and Bexhill in Sussex, specifically Crowhurst, my previous
Other themes include: French publishers Leon & Levy (LL), comic cards, silks, good
real photographic PC’s, transport - especially ships and trains, and many more.
If you have any cards in the themes listed above and would like to give me (or sell
to me!!), then please get in touch.
