Manuel Wielandt (Post Card Artist, circa 1890s) Complete checklist. Manuel Wielandt's watercolor images of Italian towns include 100 cards divided into four series of 25 cards each. This checklist of his postcard images is a collaboration of two collectors, Susan Lane, of the Taconic Postcard Club in New York, and Ray Hahn, of the South Jersey Postcard Club. We welcome the collector and researcher to use this list and to fill in the unknowns. The list has been indexed both numerically and alphabetically.
Manuel Wielandt (German Artist, circa 1900, Rhine (Rhein) River Set... It has been thought for many years that Manuel Wielandt's Rhine (Rhein) River series contained just six cards, however, recent research has proven that assumption to be incorrect. With the help of two international contributors we now know there are at least ten cards in the set. The ten currently known images show cities and castles along the Rhine (Rhein) circa 1900.
