The People of Gibraltar
2016 – Picture Cards – The Heritage Trust


At some moment in the late 20th century, a set of picture cards were produced for the Gibraltar Heritage Trust by Sharp Marketing Ltd. The photographic reproductions were created by Sparrow - presumably from original material held by the Gibraltar Museum. I suppose the general idea was to publicise Gibraltar through the work of local and other artists and in the process generate some useful cash through their sale


The digital copies of every one of these attractive cards were made available to me by my fellow local amateur historian Nelson Mario Yome – Thank you Nelson.
