Description:

1898-1935, Fascinating selection of ca.500 cards and covers, mostly showing picture postal stationery cards with a wide range of different scenes from the bush, mostly unused but other showing some interesting frankings, plus a small exhibit on the Swedes in Congo, an amazing assembly

Note: Includes a photocard of the famous Sir Henry Morton Stanley SIGNED by him on the picture side, sent by the infamous autograph hunter W. Reginald Bray, with accompanying letter from Mrs. Stanley apologising that because her husband was unwell that he “has written his name on the photographic card but his writing is still weak & uncertain”
