The "Popular Series"


The Popular Series

It is likely that a number of different companies have introduced series which they have called "The Popular Series" and for the time being I have decided just to record details of "F S" cards in the "Popular" series - together with very brief details of other comic cards with the same series title in the period 1905 to 1910.  More detailed investigations will only be carried out if a clear pattern starts to emerge.
