Company

I have no information on the companies. I presume W.O Bigg & Co was merged with Edwards, Ringer & Co around 1906/1907. The new company used the similar design as Bigg had before.

Any information is welcome !

Cards issued

For all known cards see here.

The cards have been issued with six different backs. Some of the series were numbered on the front, but the number of cards as well as the images on the front are the same. The six backs are shown below.
