The following address can be found on the back of each card:

Les Editions Gilletta is one of the few manufacturers in this collection which still remains in business today. Their website describes them as “Nice publishing house dedicated to heritage and tourism in the South of France.” They have been around since 1880. In fact, I have several books that they have published including Vu du Ciel: Villages – Des Alpes-Maritimes et du Va on which I based my 73 Village by Bike adventures. They have also published a great book on vintage postcards called Côte d’Azur – Album de Cartes Postales Colorisés. It’s possible that they may be related to another company with 6 cards in this collection called J. Gilletta et Cie.
