A recently arrived private collection of pier postcards will make their first showing with many scarce and sought-after cards on offer at the next Loddon Auctions sale at Arborfield, in Berkshire, on October 18.
It includes real photographic cards showing storm and fire damage, river as well as coastal piers and many other pier cards sorted by location.
The sale will also offer a further selection of good London suburb cards including RPs of shop fronts, delivery vehicles, street scenes and other views. Foreign cards will also be offered with several Africa related lots with good ethnic interest.
There will also be many themed lots including theatre, shipping, silks, artist drawn glamour, London Life, Louis Wain and advertising and much more.
