E. R. Green & Co.

of Blackpool

 

A Blackpool based Publisher of the Syllikuss series of cards in 1909

 

Edward Rhodes Green & Co was a stationer, draper and outfitter at 10 Victoria Street, Blackpool who sold post cards from 1904 with the initials "E R G & Co." in the "Victoria Series." The great majority of the cards he sold were views of the Blackpool area but the "Victoria Series" also included a number of comic cards, mainly unsigned, and apparently by different artists

 

The publisher is of interest because in published a number of cards signed by "Syllikuss" (a name used by Frederick Spurgin) appeared in the "Victoria Series" in the summer of 1909.
