H. Fleury junior postcards

 


Catalogue of my collection of "H. Fleury junior" postcards

For some of the sets of cards, titles for the set are printed either on the front or the back of the card ("At the Zoo", "Noted Trains", "Belle Vue", "Our Camp", "Our Holidays", "Our Picnic", "Hints to Motorists"). For the remainder, I have grouped them by guesswork as I have collected them, and have invented the titles for the sets. For information about the life of Hermann Fleury junior, who was my great uncle, click here.

Do not forget to insure
if you are a bad mechanic
If your car bolts run it
where you are most likely
to fall on something soft
Always show a deaf ear

chauffeur by showing undue
alarm when danger is ahead
Reckless driving round
corners may make the best
of friends fall out

Comic - Photographer - The Star Series - G. D.& D., London - Printed in Bavaria (click here to enlarge this set)
 
Cards 4, 5 and 6 of this set are without the H. Fleury junior signature. Perhaps he forgot to sign them, or perhaps the signature was cropped off in the printing process. I think the photographer in cards 2 and 6 of this set is modelled on the artist's father Hermann Fleury (senior) a portrait of whom can be found here. He was himself a photographer and portrait painter.

I have come across three versions of this set. Two are published by GD&D - one with, and one without, a white border. The third set (without border) is published by Chas. L. Reis & Co., Dublin. The ones shown below are the GD&D set with the white border. I have indicated below which cards from the three sets which I have actually collected. Mount Melleroy (or Melleray) Monastery is in County Waterford in the south of the Republic (see card 4).

Pair of photography themed cards (click here to enlarge this set)
 
These cards appear to be a pair on their own rather than part of a set of six. They have a white border and I think they are early ones. On the back they are marked with the G. D.& D monogram and Printed in Germany.
