Lehnert & Landrock

And again, at the same collectables fair mentioned below, a small handful of Lehnert & Landrock postcards. The most collectable ones are the exotic nudes of young male and female arabs but I've been a fan of Lehnert's topographical, orientalist photography for a long time, once having a large collection of several hundred postcards. Over time it became difficult to find their postcards because we had pretty much bought out the stock of all the dealers who came to the fairs we were visiting on a regular basis. That was when it stopped being fun and we sold the collection. But every now and again I'll see one and in Winchester on Monday there were eight - a little seam of gold in a dealers postcard box - these three among them, and I couldn't resist.
