"Platino Series"

and other uncoloured children photocards published by:

London View Co. Ltd.

The London View Company appears to have started to publish post cards showing pictures of children in 1905 and continued with a different series after it became a limited company in 1906. The Platino Series was produced at the end of 1906, after the restriction relating to overseas postage had been removed.

The existence of these cards, showing the same girl on the same photo shoot, but different backs and a different arrangement for the title, suggests that the images may well have been produced by another company but sold with the London View Co. Ltd. name as the publisher.
