I recently found a great set of old postcards at our local carboot. This person overlooking mountains caught my eye and a rummage through the box uncovered nine more, all signed “Niessen”. I couldn’t leave a matching set behind!
Information about Walter Niessen has been almost impossible to find but may of his other postcards also capture nature and landscapes. Auction listings suggest these were produced between 1930 and 1940. Without a post mark or stamp, it’s hard to say for sure when these would have been in circulation.
Being unable to find any more information about the photographer is a real shame. I’m normally quite a good detective but I don’t really know where else to look for more information — searching has lead me to plenty more of his postcards I’d like to buy though.
