Enell & Hoff Airliner Cards Mar 2019
As vintage publisher cards go, the early 1950s Enell series is among the most collectible. An excellent biography of George Enell by Tadd Kotick, as well as an illustrated list, may be found on Larry Myers Postcard Post.
I've attempted to update the list, and provide images of the cards below. Cards of subjects other than airliners are omitted. The first image, is from a series of Enell photos that correspond to the postcards. Since the photos aren't numbered, I'm only speculating that this view might be the elusive card #3.

Prior to the Enell issues, in the 1940s, Official LaGuardia Airport photographer William Hoff issued a series of cards related to the airport. There were a number of reissues, in slightly different formats, and like the Enells, photo sets were sold including 12 airport or airliner views for $.25. I've included photos where I'm missing cards. This set which follows the Enell cards, is incomplete.
Naturally, I would very much appreciate scans of missing cards.
