Devon, by artists Ewart Baker, Andrew Beer and Phil Weston

Today's vintage postcard blog update covers the english county of Devon, and in particular postcards by the artists Ewart Baker, Andrew Beer and Phil Weston, dating back to the 1920's. I've grouped these postcards together as they all have a similar artistic style (unfortunately my knowledge of art is not sufficient to suggest what it might be called, and there's no information on the back of the postcards). It's hard to make a call but I think the Ewart Baker ones are probably my favourites.

Bathing Beach and Redcliffe Hotel, Paignton, by the artist Ewart Baker

As always, these and similar vintage postcards can be found on my vintage postcards web site


  1. The postcards you've been posting are such incredible works of art! Really enjoying looking at them every week. My favorite this week has to be the one with the sheep, although I am always partial to seascapes!

  2. How lovely! I really enjoy the reproductions of artists work. Happy PFF!

  3. These are lovely and romantic without being too sweet. Great! Happy PFF.

  4. Very atmospheric. Especially the first three are beaiutifully done. Happy PFF.

  5. These are beautiful. The last one is my favorite...looks like it popped right out of a fairy tale!

  6. Once, an idio[m-speaker] said that a painting should not be reduced to postcard-size. Your cards prove again how wrong he was.

  7. Magic in their beauty. Happy PFF!

  8. Lovely postcard! I like the sheep in particular!

  9. I love these--especially the one with rough seas--there's something magical about these artists' work.

    Happy PFF!
