W.S. Thomson – Postcards

Individual postcards

W.S. Thomson supplied postcards to the major UK postcard publishers and became ultimately his own postcard publisher.

Pocket Pictorials

Six to twelve individual postcards were spiral bound and sold as a booklet of postcards. Most of the time, Thomson was the publisher of these pocket pictorials, sometimes produced for a particular client for promotional purposes.


A number of lettercards, published as a series of six postcards printed on lightweight paper with lots of room to write at the back, were produced by Miller & Lang with Thomson’s photographs.
