THE GERECKE CHECKLIST

A LIST OF NUMBERED POSTCARDS WITH THE NAME GERECKE ON THEM

This list was compiled by the cooperative efforts of Jon Krupnick and Larry Myers with the added input of several Postcard Post customers. You may have seen variations of some of these images on postcards that did not appear to have any credits to Gerecke. Also, there are many additional postcards that appear to be Gerecke photos that contain no Gerecke credits.
