Happy Snaps, Guernsey

 

Happy Snaps Guernsey back

Another walking picture firm about which nothing much is known. Happy Snaps was quite a common name for walkie firms for obvious reasons, at least six are logged (and it remains a popular name for photo related businesses to this day!).  This firm were on Guernsey, at 48 Pollet Street, stamped on the back of their prints. I do not have an example myself, this one is from the web. It would look to date from the late 1940s. The print has the irregular cut out edges some firms liked. The photographer seems to have picked a popular thoroughfare judging by the number of cars and people walking through, and it’s a nice print, you could see why they would be happy to buy it.
