Maybe the University at Canterbury would be interested to add them to their cartoon and postcard archive

Hopefully not Francis Frith - too bloody expensive to access!

The firm have rather valuable site in London Road Sevenoaks, so I guess that was another factor in closing up. I suppose some Postcards will be still be printed somewhere, possibly abroad.

Yes I wonder what will happen to their archive, perhaps someone like Francis Frith will make them available on the web.

Sad to see them go: it always seemed odd to find that pretty much wherever we went on holiday as kids the cards had been printed in our home town

That is indeed sad news, although perhaps inevitable. The serious issue is what becomes of their archive?
