MY COLLECTION
UK MAP POSTCARDS BY DESIGN
Salmon Series

Back to Design Index

The Salmon "green" map postcards were the most prolific series, issued at least five times in different styles or sizes.
The first set (of which I have a complete collection) comprised of 70 designs, largely by M F Peck and a few by P Posner.
The three series were...
the original size first release of all 70 designs (5½ inches x 3½ inches),
the green-bordered reprint issue (approx 15cm x 10.5cm, known as continental size)
and the unbordered issue (also continental size).
Where there are pictures missing from the three sections below, I still need that version, assuming they were ever printed that is.
There was also a fourth gold-bordered set and a fifth larger set each measuring approx 17.5cm x 12.5cm.

Prior to the main series of Salmon map postcards there were several issued by J Salmon, of which I only have a few (shown immediately below),
some of which were very similar in design to the W E Mack postcards.

There was also the rivers sets, again in two sizes and three series: 5½ inches x 3½ inches, approx 15cm x 10.5cm with blue borders and then the same without borders.

The last Salmon map postcard series is the set of ten David Hobbs comic maps.
