MY COLLECTION
UK MAP POSTCARDS BY DESIGN
Salmon

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) where the map itself remained exactly the same size as the first release
and the unbordered issue (also continental size) where the map was expanded in size to fill the continental size.
Where there are pictures missing from the continental 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.


*In reality only 68 designs as Cornwall was issued twice, first with the county aligned due west, and later re-drawn and correctly aligned south-west. Somerset was also issued twice, as Somerset, then as Somerset & Avon.
* Five of the remaining seven designs were drawn by Phoebe June Posner after the tragic death of Maisie Peck in 1974. The last two of the remaining seven designs (the canals) were un-signed and therefore artist unknown.


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 these were very similar in design to the W E Mack postcards and in fact one of the W E Mack cards is published by Salmon (shown below).

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.

In addition to the usual colour variations due to many print-runs, some Salmon cards had physical variations as shown in the following Salmon Variants sub-gallery.
