2009/2010 Miscellaneous                Back to Index

  I show below a newly found artist drawn card for Whitby. It is definitely printed by Dennis, but the artist's style is different to ETWDs drawing style for the Whitby card,  ( illustrated elsewhere on this web). The size of the card is 121mm*75mm, (Alan Kelly collection) Alan also has an unused copy of North Bay Scarborough in the size of 121mm*75mm

 I show also a magnified section of the lower left, with very uncertain  initials

 

 

 

 


 

 Dennis published 12 cards of the IOM, in the larger , (not court) , size. Envelope shown above.(Alan Kelly collection). Details are as follows. v=vertical.

(Somebody on the Internet mistakenly ascribes the Port Erin and also Loch Promenade cards to a firm of ETW Dennis of ???Scunthorpe???. Dennis was always run from Scarborough and never Scunthorpe)

Random notes (In no order and of varying interest)


 

 A descendent of a printer who worked for Dennis says that his forbear worked for Dennis , printing in Leeds and not Scarborough , about 1920


   John Hinde bought the Dennis Print & Publishing business in 2000. They continue to publish some Dennis numbered cards up to the present (April 2010) under the  heading "Dennis Print & Publishing " . .One  example  I found was  a PPC  of "York Minster" with a Dennis reference number of  Y002102L, with a copyright attribution to E.T.W.DENNIS & SONS LTD, SCARBOROUGH
