Laindon Postcards - including Lee Chapel
Postcards produced by an unknown publisher

Among the postcards produced featuring Laindon and Lee Chapel backgrounds there are many that have no detail as to the publisher's identity. Indeed, postcards exist where the front view is without a caption which can make identifying the location difficult. It is possible that some were produced locally and would have been produced in limited numbers which adds to their scarcity today.

Below are some of the known cards.
