Manufacturer: Les Editions “MAR” – 7 postcards.
The postcards in this collection manufactured under the name of Les Editions “MAR” have several different designs and formats.
The fronts of the cards feature either a full color or black and white photograph, with one exception, a hand tinted color photograph. There is no information on the front. In a few cases there is a “MAR” logo on the front, but it actually has three different designs.
The back of each card contains a location, a brief description, a number and sometimes a “MAR” logo. The design and format of the backs of the cards differs from one card to another, sometimes just a bit, sometimes completely. An additional “K” logo, an “IRIS” logo, an “M” logo and a “Mexichrome” logo can also be found on several cards.
The number sequences are also all over the map taking the form of 835, 1308, 9173, 1166, 14775 and AG 96, for example.
The following address if found on the back of all the cards (though sometimes one or both of the phone numbers are omitted):
Les Editions « MAR », 4, Bd de Cimiez – Nice
Tél. 85.36.25 – 85.36.26
It’s possible that this is the same company featured in the collection under the name of Les Editions Mar but the address is different and the cards are so different that I hesitate to make that connection.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
All postcards are from the collection of Howard Shakespeare unless otherwise noted.
