The People of Gibraltar

1930 - Postcards - L. Sacarello

In the 1930s Lorenzo Sacarello, (see LINK) brought out a set of postcards for sale in his small stationery shop at 96 Main Street in Gibraltar.

The photos were apparently taken by Combier Imprimeur Macon, a rather well known company at the time that specialised in producing postcards from all over the world. The photos were sold in sets of twelve inside a pink folder. Many of them will seem familiar as they have since appeared elsewhere and have been published by others. Nevertheless I believe these are the original versions.
