Welcome to the beginnings of our online archives. This section is going to take some time to complete but the idea is that it will eventually include a wealth of reference materials and an online museum.

Just some of the wonders planned are

  • our postal auction archive, complete with prices realised. 

  • our convention archive, tracing the story of our Annual General Meetings as they transformed from a few hours of discussing Society business into the two day card conventions and swap meets that we hold today.

  • the development of our magazine from our first printed words as part of The London Cigarette Card Company`s "Cigarette Card News"; through our inaugural productions "the Bulletin", and "The Cartophilic World", our merging with the Cameric Society and creation of "The Cartophilic Notes and News", and on into today`s "Card World". 

Do bear with us while we compile and present this information!

And if you have information about any of the aspects above that you think may be of interest to us, or would like to share, we'd love to hear from you. Please email us at
