Lucien Levy (L.L.) became a well-known photographer in the late 1900s who began publishing international postcards from his own work. His name does not appear on all his cards, but "L.L." follows many titles as a photo credit. Most of his cards were printed as colotypes in black and white, sepia and over colored lithography. In 1919 his company united with Neurdein Freres to become Levy & Neurdein reunis.
