The Jaeger Airliner Cards May 2019
While the USA had few vintage airline postcard publishers, Europe had a diverse group of publishers producing excellent cards from the 1950s to the present. Among the very early publishers was Editions Jaeger of Geneva Switzerland. Long a publisher of scenery and monument cards, Jaeger began issuing cards of airliners and the Geneva airport around 1950. The earliest cards appear to be airliners superimposed on scenes of Lake Geneva. But soon thereafter Jaeger began to issue excellent  in flight images, apparently sourced from the airlines or the manufacturers. This continued until the early 1960s.
Jaeger backs were not very informative, but some slight evolution occurred during the 10 years of publication. Several backs are illustrated which are not necessarily in chronological order.
A reborn Jaeger appeared around 1965, but apparently did not focus on airliners.

Once again Kuo Ching Fu has shared many of these cards from his personal collection (indicated by the KCF suffix) They are very much appreciated.
