D Richard Torrance, Edinburgh, tells me that there was a company, Charles Helmrich & Sons, Aberdeen that published an Albany series of postcards.  They added the initials 'CH&S, A' to their postcards.

I don't know whether or not this is the same company as published the Albany series of cards of Edinburgh above.

Cards on textured paper

Postcard of Princes Street, looking east from the Scott Monument towards the Balmoral Hotel, in the style of an oil painting

This is an attractive series of cards, printed on heavily textured paper. The pictures have the appearance of oil paintings with brush strokes.

I have still not discovered the photographer or publisher of the cards. 

Please click here to see thumbnail images of many of these cards.

Cards numbered PN....

Postcard by an unidentified publisher  -  Joppa  -   Looking to the west along Joppa Road  -  Postcard No PN4037

I have seen several cards with numbers PN...., but no photographer's name or publisher.  The cards that I have seen appear to have been published around the 1960s.  The numbers indicate that the company may have produced quite a large number of different views.  If you know who this publisher was, please e-mail me.

Thank you.    - Peter Stubbs, July 3, 2007
