The „Forth“ Collection of Chinese & Hong Kong Picture Postcards
The following 50 lots form a lifetime of collecting with over 7200 cards mostly unused with a smattering of used throughout. This collection shows a vast array of different scenes including trams & railways, boats & steamships, street scenes, family scenes, local markets, etc. In addition and in true postcard collectors fashion the amazing assembly presents many of the same scenes but from different publishers and or from different angles.
The period cover is from the late 19th century to about 1940, however the vast number of cards fall in the 1900 to 1920 period, with both black and white, early coloured cards, plus a variety of different later colouring methods.
As the collector’s passion was to collect the cards by publisher the following lots are arrange alphabetically in publisher order as follows:
PUBLISHERS A – A.H.& CO OF HONG KONG: Selection of 85 picture postcards of Hong Kong, mostly unused with a few used, show duplication but in different colours, better scenes include trams and mountain railways etc. (85) (Est. € 600/800)
