I have finished my publication on all known photo postcards of three Dutch publishers, which all issued standard size photocards in black & white with cars from the late 1950s to the mid 1960s.
These publishers are:
- Bureau Autopress, Amsterdam
- De Muinck en Co., Amsterdam
- Gebr. Spanjersberg N.V., Rotterdam (also called SpaRo).
All of them have issued these cards with pictures of new cars at the time they were for sale to advertise them to the public. The name of the Dutch importer is usually printed on the reverse and most, but not all cards have a number and the release date (month/year) code.
This publication, describing and showing over 260 different photocards, is available from November 2014 onwards and can be bought for a price of € 7,95 + postage. Above you see the cover of the booklet which counts 52 pages. It has text in Dutch and English.
This could make a nice Christmas present. The edition has a limited run of 100 copies.
Below a number of examples are shown and I would welcome any reactions with information of similar cards you do not see here. Thanks!
