B. E. Pudney was a prolific publisher of postcards depicting the scenes of Delaware County, New York and the surrounding region. Located at the village of Sidney, he was also a well-known businessman, at times operating a clothing store, a bicycle shop, a stationery store, an automobile garage and a famous music store.
I have recently acquired around 50 postcards that were published by B. E. Pudney. Although Pudney’s postcards depict scenes from all the counties and regions surrounding the village of Sidney, my collection focuses mostly on the Catskills portion of Delaware County. The postcards include scenes from Masonville, Sidney, East Sidney and Delhi. The postcards depict village scenes, buildings, churches, bridges, roads, waterfalls and landscapes Although not published by Pudney, there is also a postcard showing his store titled “B. E. Pudney’s Piano and Music Store.”
The gallery also includes 40 advertisements published in the local newspapers by Pudney from throughout his business career.
The complete collection of postcards can be found by navigating to Gallery >> Historic Catskills Photographers >> B. E. Pudney.
