    'Right click' this link to down-load a listing of Lily Elsie postcards, sorted by publisher and serial number. MS Excel 97 format. (31KB) I can provide other formats on request.

    This down-load listing is not limited to the cards used on this site, it includes all the cards I know of. If you have any others in your collection it would be most helpful if you could mail me the details. In that way I can make the listing as complete as possible. Thank you.
