Römmler & Jonas
Established in 1871 "Kunstdruck-Anstalt Römmler & Jonas" was a publishing house in Dresden, which was known by its printing of architectural photographs. The company was specialized in the production of cityscapes that it systematically had photographed in every major city through local contractors and then printed mostly in cabinet format on paper, books and art prints. This followed the publishing of continuously numbered postcards of European cities and artist-signed postcards such as that of the painter Carl Wuttke with motifs from Egypt.
The series starting with 15001 is of Constantinople. The letters after the series numbers represent the postcard style. There are four basic styles:
e - Landscape with smaller picture placed anchored to top left with 1/4 writing area on the right and bottom or full page picture with a square writing area on right bottom corner
g - Landscape with bottom 1/4 to 1/3 reserved for writing
h - Portrait with bottom 1/4 to 1/3 reserved for writing
s - Landscape with right 1/4 reserved for writing
Sometimes this letter is preceded with a, B, C, G or S.
