Hildesheimer & Faulkner, London

Following the lead of other publishers, Hildesheimer & Faulkner sponsored a prize exhibition in 1881 and awarded £2,000 in prize money. They produced cards primarily in the 1880's, but continued as a manufacturer of postcards into the 20th century. Gleeson White writes: "…the dominant influences that show, are what one may call "popular academic" rather than "aesthetic" taste; that is to say, their bias has been toward the pictorial, rather than the purely decorative treatment."
