      Swift, this is the information that I received from Alan Petrulis the webmaster@metropostcard.com:

      This is a popular type of installment card published during the First
      World War and the years leading up to it. They were usually sold in a
      wrapped packet of ten cards. Each card was meant to be sent to the
      same person at different times so they could slowly anticipate
      completing the image. Some sets were never mailed and kept whole as
      souvenirs. Most of these sets were French made; produced on photo
      paper and then hand colored. This is a very unusual image as mosts
      sets depict figures or famous people.

      - Alan Petrulis

      Very Nice Information! Thanks again to Alan Petrulis, and to you Swift, for posting this Family Heirloom, so we can all learn about it! :^)

      Thank you for the information, I will pop it with them, they are now safely stored in album along with all the postcards he wrote home from the trenches. A lovely piece of history to pass down.
      Thank you everyone:)
