This collection, a gift of Leonard A. Lauder, consists of more than 35,500 Raphael Tuck & Sons postcards, mainly the Oilette series. The Tuck Company began operating in England in 1866, and started printing picture postcards in 1894. Oilette postcards, introduced in 1903, were the work of many different artists employed by the company and encompassed a great variety of subject matter, including country and farm scenes, landscapes, and churches. Tuck described Oilettes as “veritable miniature oil paintings.” Postcards are undated; however, the Tuck Company went out of business in 1959, so the dates for the collection are approximate.
