Master "Back" Listing

When the London View Company Ltd went out of business in the summer of 1907 it seems likely that "F S" had many new series is the same style in preparation - and there may have been sets already prepared and sold to the London View Company Ltd.

Some may have been passed (or commissioned to Vertigen) and published by the new owners.

In theory at least 999 cards

Some cards exist in two forms- one with left margin reading "Printed in Germany" and the same number. These variations have been treated as the same group.

All unsigned

Some are definitely "F S" or the Crown Series, others could be by "F S", but most probably by other artists

 

POST CARD [dot]  variant

Divider - double vertical lines

Numbers over 600

Possibly extension of the above - with some overlap of numbers - a few signed and lower proportion of "F S" like cards.
