Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Yes, I am, and have a few. More specifically in those that were marked as having emmanated from photographic studios and processors in Derbyshire (England) and the Bay of Plenty (New Zealand), my two main areas of interest. Ephemera like this often have the name of the client written on them, which provides another interest connection between photographer, subject, camera equipment, photos and printers.
Yes! Many are attractive in their own right. The Kodak ones from c1910 feature the Kodak girl, the Ensign and Ilford envelopes are coloured and they are reflect the prevailing design aesthetic of their period.
Hi Geoff & a little while ago I wrote an article on print envolopes for Tailboard, the magazine of the PCCGB. I can send you a scan of it if of interest. Also my proper job is photographic consultant for an auction company and we sold the collection of envolopes after I had written about them so I have quite a few images as well.
Let me know when you can.
Hi Geoff & I just sent you a scan of the article & some images via WeTranser. I hope you find them interesting.
