F. S. Series -

"Xmas Cards with Holly Box"

The PCM (March 2009) lists 5 cards (presumably printed as a set of six) and I have only been able to locate one of these - but have found two possible contenders for this set - one of which is more raunchy that the normal "F S" cards!

The earliest located is dated from December 1907 and they could have been "work in progress" when the London View Company Ltd. closed down in August 1907 - but publication went ahead using the same Saxony printer. The following observations point to this possibility:
