Tuck's Oilette Manx Views

Rapael Tuck's "Oilette" range was extensive - they are reproductions of usually specially commisioned paintings - these I think date from c.1905 (or before), two were posted in 1906 and 1907, a third was posted in 1929 but appears to have been saved for some time judging from the message on the back.

These cards carried a small descriptive paragraph on the reverse, I also have a number of possibly later cards in similar style but without the descriptive paragraph. None of these cards appears to have been signed by the artist.
