Donald McGill Museum
See the cards they banned! Donald McGill, the most popular postcard artist ever, designed over 12,000 cards, sold millions, and yet died almost penniless. Buy copies of the ‘obscene’ cards that so outraged magistrates around the country that they ordered 5,000 to be destroyed in Ryde alone!
The most prolific postcard artist ever – 12,000 designs in a 58 year career. So many, that George Orwell thought Donald McGill was a collective name for all the artists in the firm, not an actual person.
Kaiser Bill and Hitler – same jokes, different faces! If it worked in the First World War, it’ll work in the Second!
Own your own! Over a hundred different designs for sale of original fifty-year-old unsold stock – yours for a few bob!
Politically correct? They were at the time – see the world from a different viewpoint, when the British Empire covered the globe.
Prosecuted for obscenity – inside the rude mind of the upstanding Edwardian gentleman!
