Wapens en Kerken (Arms and churches)


In the 1930s (?) two series of postcards were issued in the Netherlands showing the arms and a typical church from a town.

Series 1

These series were issued by the company Lima from Amsterdam. They could be bought as series in a package. The information folder indicates that an album can be obtained afterwards, however, such an album may never have been published. Also it is mentioned that these cards are Series 1, but I am not aware of any other series.
