9 Cards from a 1921 Set by F J Haynes
The "official photographer" of YNP was F J Haynes and in 1921 he published a set of cards known as the Vignette set of divided back cards. The dictionary defines "vignette" as a small illustration or portrait photograph that fades into its background without a definite border. The cards feature an artistic image in the middle of a card. These were wonderfully produced by artists. Take a look at the full card first and then a close-up of the image.
