[Our featured card is by Lambert & Butler – from the 1926 set of  “Motor Index Marks”. This is a really attractive set showing local views as well as the registration letters which at that time denoted where any car on the road had been registered. However its title can suggest that it is a set showing cars. One note of warning. This set has been reproduced for commercial sale and framing. The reproduction cards do carry wording to this effect, but do be careful if you are offered a mint set at a bargain rate.]
