Vence Postcards
Les Editions Gilletta

Manufacturer: Les Editions Gilletta – 2 postcards.

The two postcards in this collection manufactured under the name of Les Editions Gilletta are exactly the same.

The front of each card features a full color photograph and the phrase “VENCE – CÔTE D’AZUR.” On the back is a location, a short description and a number.

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

Les Editions Gilletta – 5 rue Michel Ange – 06100 NICE
tel: 93-51-94-94

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.

If you have any questions about any of the cards featured here, if you see any errors or if you would like more information, drop me an email at steve@steveandcaroleinvence.com.

All postcards are from the collection of Howard Shakespeare unless otherwise noted.
