G.P. Abraham, Ltd. (Abraham Brothers) (1865-1920’s)

Founded by photographer George Perry Abraham in England’s Lake District where he produced photographs and lantern slides of local scenery. His two sons, photographer Ashley and artist George Dixon joined the company and began producing real photo postcards by 1907. Avid rock climbers they did much to enhance the sport by publishing and illustrating guide books with their photos. Many of Ashley’s images were turned into real photo postcards with hand coloring done by George. They became a limited company in 1917. (source: Metropolitan Postcard Club of New York City)
