Raphael Tuck vintage postcards of London

I have only ever come across postally unused copies of these vintage postcards so am not exactly sure of their date. My guess would be the early mid-50's as the publisher notes on the back of the cards reads "Fine Art Publishers By Appointment To The Late King George VI ..." but the images on the postcards do appear to be older judging by some of the old cars and buses. They are all numbered starting with the letter 'L', and the highest number I've found to date is L24. Some are better than others but I've included a few of my favourites below:

The Thames With Tower Bridge and the Tower, L11


The Mansion House, L15


The Guards Band, L3


The Tower of London from Tower Bridge, L13


The Law Courts, L20


The Cenotaph and Whitehall, L12


Houses of Parliament showing Big Ben, L4

These and hundreds of other vintage postcards can be found on my vintage postcard web site
