Birn Brothers of London, England were a major publishing house. Listed in the London trade directories from 1882 at 135 London Wall and in subsequent years at 27 Finsbury Street and 67-70 Bunhill Row.
In 1898 their manager, Mr Elsner, was asked if the fashion of sending out cards has had its day. “Emphatically not” was the answer and he went on to report that in the previous year they sold eighteen and a half million cards.
