A Study in Postcards

We are pleased to present to members the Society’s latest publication.   Sarah Obermuller-Bennett has been collecting classic postcards with a Holmesian theme for many years – and here presents gems from her collection and provides fascinating background research for each example.

William Gillette appears in various guises – but what do you know of Icelandic actor Bjarni Bjornsson in 1912?   What is interesting about Exeter’s Theatre Royal on a 1907 postcard, or one of a Hastings shoemaker holding a marrow in 1917?   Why was the museum in Aurillac significant in 1910, or a brand of shoe-heels in 1904?   All is revealed in this sumptuously-illustrated glossy volume.   With e-mail already so passé, Sarah’s enthusiasm for communication from an earlier age shines through on every page, casting light on a wonderful area of Sherlockiana.
