Identical picture (sheep in same position) issued by Picture Postcards Co Ltd circa 1900

Photochrom was a large company in England from 1896 and produced a large number of view cards. Picture Poctcard Co. Ltd. specialised in Railway advertising type cards and it seems likely that the picture was taken by Photochrom or their agents and they supplied the negatives rather than Picture Postcard taking the photographs.

This is a temporary page being used to collect examples of this photographer or post card publisher.

When I get half a dozen examples (or a request for more information)  I will carry out some more detailed research, and draw up a time line.
