Convention 1988

Barbican, London
1988 was the Golden Jubilee of the Cartophilic Society, and to celebrate this an exhibition and luncheon took place at London`s Barbican on October 15. We are not sure if this was the AGM as well. The event included three displays of cards from 1888 (100 years ago), 1938 (50 years ago) and 1988. All members attending the lunch received a special souvenir, a postcard sized copy of “The Marquis of Lorne” card, which at that time was the earliest dated card in existence.
