Toronto. Last Wednesday, Mike Smith was our speaker and gave a postcard perspective on Goderich photographer Reuben R Sallows who was active in the late 1800s – early 1900s. Mike and co-author Larry Monring are writing a book on Sallows and postcards due out next month.
In the course of his talk, he mentioned the difficulty he had verifying Sallows’s work on postcards. One source of magazines he singled out was a site called archive.org. This site has a wealth of books and videos on a wide variety of subjects from an equally diverse number of libraries.
