London View Co. Ltd. Printed in Saxony 18 April 1907

Perhaps it was a desire to be different that prompted the London View Company of Long Lane, E.C. to issue about six collotypes showing Crawley after a heavy snowstorm in February 1907. The roads are blanketed in snow, the trees (in many cases long-lost elms) have heavily encrusted branches, and few people are about. The mood is one of cold silence, stillness, even loneliness.

The London View Co. was a short-lived firm. It started trading in 1905 (at Aldersgate Street), and ceased operations in 1908. The Crawley cards, which were printed in Saxony, are marked "Photo by Belchamber" in the stamp space, and were probably sold at the Belchamber shop. It is not known whether the Crawley firm commissioned the London View Co. to produce the cards using their photographs, or whether they took the photographs on the instructions of the London View Co.

    These two cards have a non-standard back and are of additional interest because they were posted in September & October 1905 to Mrs. S Horn (nee Cox) of Handside Farm, Hatfield, who is a relative of mine who already appears elsewhere on this web site.
