Dating VULCAN post cards of Hertfordshire

If you are writing up your family history old post cards can be a useful source of information. Vulcan post cards have the advantage that they can be dated reasonably accurately - see The VULCAN Series of Post Cards.  Cards with the above back were published from about 1920, and possibly not after about 1930 and are typically of small villages, where not many different cards were published. In many cases the "Published by" line refers to the Post Office (often included in the picture) or a similar village store.
