Weidner P.P.I.E. Catalog

This page displays Charles Weidner postcards of the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, printed by Albertype (Brooklyn, N.Y.). The series includes stock numbers 1 to 56, plus a few unnumbered cards; the stock number usually appears on the front and the caption on the back. Some images are scans of cards in my collection, but others are downloaded from the internet, so image quality varies and for some cards no image of the back is available. This list includes variant versions of some cards: substantial color variation between examples due to handcoloring, empty borders around the image, stock number left vs. right, etc.

Statistics: 26 from my collection, 34 from www, 17 no image.
