1920's Picturegoer Postcards

These are British issued postcards put out by the movie magazine Picturegoer from the 1920's through the 1960's.  The examples below are all from the 20's to possibly the early 1930's at the latest.  The first image of the Slide Show below shows what a typical reverse side looks like.  Each postcard measures 3-1/2" X 5-1/2".  Real photos with glossy finish on front.  On the back of each card is a number.  The lettering after some of the numbers denotes the series that the card was from.  The first series had no lettering, it was followed by Series "A", Series "B", etc...

Here are a couple of other sites with more extensive information on this issue:

Notes on the Slideshow:
Hover over the large image and a description will appear. 

Use the arrows to scroll left or right or click the photo image to the right of the arrow on the right and the slide show will move on its own, displaying a new image every 4-5 seconds. 

Clicking a large image will open a new window featuring an enlargement of the image or take you to a Profile for the featured star that is published elsewhere on this site.

All images found in the slide show above are of collectibles that we either have sold or currently have for sale.

If you enjoyed the Slide Show of Picturegoer Postcards found above or any of the other Slide Shows on this site, they were all made with the CoffeeCup Flash Photo Gallery, both affordable and easy to use.  If you run your own site you should check it out, along with CoffeeCup's other site tools (I use 3 of them on this site myself!):
