Long associated with the traditional British seaside holiday, comic postcards had an enormous influence in shaping our National humour. Often crossing the line of good taste, they were the visual counterpart to the working man’s club joke and the music hall comedy turn. This collection of original illustrations and their associated finished postcards were all drawn by Arnold Taylor (b.1910), one of the most prolific and best known artist working for Bamforth’s, a family firm of printers in Holmfirth renowned for their comic postcards.

 

The illustrations are to be sold in our next Stamp and Postcard Sale, Spring 2017
