Compagnie des Arts Photomécaniques (CAP)

Paris, France and Strasbourg, France (Publisher, Printer)

In 1932, the publishing house, Compagnie des Arts Photomécaniques (Company of photo-mechanical arts) (CAP), took over the activities of the three largest French postcard publishers of the time: Ferrier-Soulier, Neurdein Frères and Lévy Fils et Cie (the latter two of which had been joined as Lévy et Neurdein réunis in 1920). Although located in Paris, at the end of the 1930s, the firm moved to the Schiltigheim area of Strasbourg, France, where it was first renamed Compagnie des Arts Photomécaniques Strasbourg-Schiltigheim and then Compagnie Alsacienne des Arts Photomécaniques Strasbourg. After the First World War, the firm relocated to Paris.
