The reverse of this postcard is of interest. It is dated September 1921.
Note firstly that it has the name of the publisher -
"R. HODGKINSON & CO., LIVERPOOL",
so they were presumably an agent for Stevens.
Secondly, note the postage is 2d. which is actually the letter rate for 1921:
the postcard rate being 1 ½d.
