Edwards Postcards
Page 1A - Liners
These postcards are no longer available for sale from this website
The Revd. Father M.N.W.Edwards produces postcards in four series:-
1: Liners to South Africa - Serial Nos. Br.S1-20, Br.S21-
2: Ferries - Serial Nos. Br.F - to be added later
3: Ships that visted Tristan da Cunha - Serial Nos. Td.C
4: Ships that have visited Antarctica - Serial Nos. Pole
Many earlier cards are now sold out, since they are printed in editions of only 500 or 250. All cards are individually hand numbered, which is unique as far as I am aware for ship postcards. This page shows the Br.S. series, which are all Union-Castle and SAFMarine vessels, including rare colour cards of some of the freighters. Photographer's names are shown (in brackets).
