English: Andrássy 94 – 1895. Stengel és Markert (scanned by Derzsi Elekes Andor). Budapest, Terézváros, 94 Andrássy avenue. 1895. Called at that time „Hübner udvar”. Stengel & Markert was founded by Emil Stengel and Heinrich Markert after buying out the collotype printer, Scherer & Engler. After Markert left to start his own printshop around 1889, the firm assumed the name Stengel & Co. They were producing postcards about this time though they had printed some collotype souvenir cards under their old name at least as far back as 1885. An office was opened in Berlin in 1899 and another factory for collotype and halftone printing followed two years later. They also opened a London office in 1901. Now working as printer, publisher, and distributor, they became the largest producer of postcards in the world. Having expanded into chromolithography, they became a major publisher and printer of fine art cards in their World’s Galleries series. Their chromolithographs employed fourteen to twenty-two litho-stones to achieve subtle coloration. Stengel’s cards were first distributed by O. Flammger, then Misch & Company in Great Britain, and by the Rotograph Company in the United States from whom they took over their production of art cards. They also published a great number of worldwide view-cards. The earliest were produced as black & white collotypes, which began to be hand colored around 1895. The simplicity of these cards make them bare little resemblance in quality to their better known art cards, and they can pass for undistinguished cards made by other publishers. Their inconsistent numbering system helps to make these more difficult to identify and date. More elaborate and higher quality collotypes in monotone, dutone, and color would latter be made.
