MY COLLECTION
UK MAP POSTCARDS BY DESIGN
Bell'acards (Ireland)

Back to Design Index

Bell'acards published by Ballinakellapress feature maps of counties, regions and themes of Ireland. Several versions have been issued over the years which include changes to fonts, colours and design. The artists were Hugh W.L. Weir (HW) and his sons Tomás Porcell and Tom Porcell-Weir (TP or TPW). Some cards were given codes and many weren't. Two logos are featured on later cards, the white logo and the black logo...

 

I have indicated below each card the Series, the Code, the Logo and the Artists.
