Company

These postcards were issued by Éditions SPES in Lausanne, before 1940. I have no information on the publisher. The images are identical to the book Armorial des Communes Vaudoises, which was issued by the same publisher in 1922.

The front of the cards shows the coat of arms of the municipality. The reverse shows either no text, or the name of the publisher.
