Weidner numbered postcards

trim.png

San Francisco photographer Charles Weidner, shown at work trimming postcards at right, published a large numbered series of postcards (1-694). A list of Weidner postcards by number and caption is here; the number typically appears on the front of earlier cards and on the back of later cards. All the images are from California, mostly from San Francisco and the Bay Area; a few are from Monterey, the Sierra, the Central Valley, and Southern California.

This page displays 457 images of postcards in the series. Some images here are my scans of cards in my collection, but most were downloaded from the web, so image quality varies widely and images of the backs of many cards are not available. This page shows multiple versions of many cards; Weidner postcard variants gives examples of variants. Separate pages show Weidner's later Panama-Pacific International Exposition postcards and a few of his later photos and real photo postcards. The captions below are not precise transcriptions of Weidner's captions.

Postmarks provide precise mailing dates for some cards, but otherwise Weidner's postcards are difficult to date, especially because he often reprinted cards with minor changes. Postmark dates here span 1903 (#015) through 1914 (#689). An online source says Goeggel & Weidner began publishing postcards in 1903 (credited as "Goeggel & Weidner, Publishers") and published 111 numbered cards before Weidner ended their partnership in 1904 (credit changed to "Charles Weidner, Photographer"). The earliest postmark on a Goeggel & Weidner card here is #015 5/11/1903, and the highest number is #110; the earliest postmark on a Weidner card is #114 6/12/1905. (Another online source says Goeggel & Weidner published their earliest postcards in 1900, and changed to "Charles Weidner, Photographer" around 1903, but I doubt both those dates.) I have seen no Weidner postcards from the "Private Mailing Card" era (ending 12/24/1901). Before a March 1907 change in postal regulations, the back of a postcard could be used only for the address ("undivided back" cards), so the front of early cards usually includes Weidner's credit and blank space for a message. The first card below without blank space on the front is #230, and #228 is the last card with an undivided back. #202 to #239 show earthquake-related images, so they obviously postdate the 1906 earthquake. #667 is postmarked 1909, so the original publication dates of almost all of Weidner's numbered postcards must predate 1910 (assuming serial numbering). I have not seen cards with postmarks later than 1914 (#689), surprisingly, suggesting that Weidner stopped marketing these postcards before World War I. Starting ca. 1909 Weidner contracted with other postcard publishers to publish postcards using his photos (e.g.: #192 as Rieder #3385, #507 as Mitchell #1462), sometimes including a Weidner photo credit (e.g.: Newman V198 and V201, Pacific Novelty V257).

Weidner's postcards are beautifully printed, and his cards typically look better than the cards of his contemporaries — compare e.g. #241 to Behrendt #238 (showing the same famous M. Tamron photograph). But there are some aesthetic issues. Card layout is sometimes haphazard, even brutally ugly (#010, #166), only occasionally inventive (#047), and lighting is rarely striking (#008, #086). Human interest is too often lacking, especially in the later cards: too many buildings, too few people, few cable cars or trolley cars, no neighborhood street life (except in Chinatown, and most of those images seem lifeless compared to Genthe's). Tastes change over a century, maybe these images were what sold well at the time. Still, the best of these cards are wonderful evocations of their time, particularly of the earthquake/fire and its aftermath (#205-214, #230-248).
