I received the following message from Alastair Campbell, Kelso, Scotland:

"In the 1950s a number of Post Cards were published by 'Lillywhites'  Can you again throw any light on a possible contact for this firm?"

 If you can help, please e-mail me and I will forward your message.

 Thank you.  -  Peter Stubbs


Thank you to Malcolm Powel who sent the reply below, which I've now passed on to Alastair Campbell.

Malcolm wrote:

"I can tell you that a firm named Lilywhites was based in Millbank, then relocated to Sowerby Bridge in 1931 after a fire. I don't have any more details - but they produced a number of postcards and were famous for paper and cards in the area at that time. There is a mention of the company in this Halifax Courier online article."
