Another small posting of Franz Thiemer cards, this time from Southeast Asia.
Another group of Franz Thiemer cards has been added, covering some of their issues in North Africa and the Middle East.
I’ve added a couple of postally unused cards from the Caribbean, and a card from Denmark. There is at least one other card from Cuba.
Several examples of Japanese cards produced by Franz Thiemer have been added.
I’ve filled in a few more blanks in the list and added some additional cards from Australia, the US, and Russia.
Further additions to the Franz Thiemer listings have been added, this time with several cards from the USA.
I’ve added some additional cards into the site, none of which are Canadian this time around, but instead represent some other areas of the world depicted on these cards. I’ve also updated the site with an updated catalog-in-progress of the cards of Franz Thiemer & Co., with about 140 of the ±200 cards identified to date.
Another Canadian pioneer postcard example from Franz Thiemer & Co. of Dresden, Germany has been added, along with more from that worldwide series dating to about 1899.
A couple of months ago I acquired a “Canadian” postcard, postally used in 1899, seen here, that was from a series I hadn’t encountered before. Reaching out to a couple of members of the Toronto Postcard Club as to whether they were familiar with this series, a very knowledgeable response came back from Andrew, who then proceeded to share a wide selection of other cards that he had acquired in this series featuring scenes from other parts of the world. He also had a theory explaining the peculiar attributes that cards in this series shared, and followed up sourcing further info on the publisher from Helmfried Luers, a German expert on European postcard publishers, who provided further insight. Intrigued, I’ve acquired more cards from the publisher, "Franz Thiemer & Co." (trading as "Compagnie Comet”), which I’ll be adding as time passes.
