Cartier Week, #7: The Cartier centenary

Out of his own collection, Andrew Thomson sends along scans of a couple of George-Etienne hundredth anniversary postcards from 1914

I collect old postcards and some of the gems of my collection are from the Valentine company's Cartier Centenary collection. There were about 10 of the cards, which I think were designed in the hope of repeating some of the success the company had had with the Quebec tercentenary. I have included a scan of a couple of the cards. 
Many thanks! Who knew?  (Well, Andrew Thomson, obviously.)
