Yes have seen this and do have 2 of the original photos, one of their many promotions. Also have the original adverts, they were in the London Illustrated News and Graphic amongst others.
The original photos have no printing to indicate Ogdens but do have the word OGDEN"S LTD  LIVERPOOL stamped into the card under the photo but not highlighted so easy to miss, in the centre. Have actually written about them with scans of the photos I have.

Card sie 163 x 106.5
Picture size 84 x 58

Dates from 1901 ish.

If you look about half way down there were three or four separate ads in the London Illustrated News as David has mentioned. These are photos I took of all the adverts I could find (still a few more copies to look through yet!)

Always interested in buying rare bird cards and general reference material (books, magazines etc.)

Must have taken some time and effort for Ogdens to do this as they obviously didn't have their own printing works.
Wonder if they actually gained any more customers using this promotion?
