Bobbie Carnegie commented on Marcel Safier's blog post Obituary: Matt Isenburg, photographic collector and historian
"What a great guy? We owe so much to the obsessions of collectors like Matt. And, so glad to learn his sold collection was not broken up. Makes me weep seeing simple old postcards of Edwardian times in 'my UK', countless of which sold…"
