Collection of the week: Pharcide

The Pharcide collection is a cornucopia of wonders, amounting to over 13,000 images at last count, captioned and scanned in-house at Mary Evans. This encyclopedic collection consists mainly of photographic postcards of people, places and scenes worldwide from the late 19th to mid-20th centuries, and is particularly strong on the USA, Canada, Britain and Australia.

You want to see the 1950 coffee club carriage on the Wabash Blue Bird train from St Louis to Chicago? Or what smart people were wearing for a visit to the Spanish bullring in 1910? Pharcide can help.

There are also sporting heroes in the form of cigarette card football teams, cricketers and boxers, and series on actors, ships, hotels and aircraft.

Dip your toe in Pharcide's international waters here, and do get in touch either by email at or by telephone on 020 8318 0034 if you'd like a search or a quote.
