My wife and I have attempted a rather lengthy internet search regarding a postcard publisher by the name of F.M. Doblmeier. He published a series of postcards with New York City landmarks, done by an artist who signs his watercolor works as "K Roller" (Samuel Kagey Roller is the artist actual name, who is my great-grandfather). Does anyone have information about what happened to this publishing company? Or perhaps have seen any of the at least 14 postcards done by artist K Roller? I have attached an image of one. My family would love to, at the very least, compile a list of all the ones that were published with his artwork, and at the very most collect copies of each! Thanks!

That is a beautiful scene. I'm sure many were saved. Good luck in your search.
Please keep us updated, as I would love to see more of them.

Thank You! They are marvelous! You've shown five of then, and think there are at least nine others?
Hopefully there will be someone post later who knows more about postcards than I do. I have seen the links to publishers posted but didn't save them as publishers are not important to me. The WHERE from is.
Again, I wish you all the luck in finding even more than you hope to!

Just wanted to bump this topic from last year, as we are still searching for postcards that used my ancestor's (signed K. Roller) paintings!
