picture postcards

Allandale Ontario Railway Station c1906 or earlier. A slight crop of the original by The Valentine & Sons’ Publishing Co. 100942

Toronto. At left is a postcard of the Allandale Railway Station and restaurant on the edge of Kempenfeldt bay. My mother worked in the restaurant in the 1930s and enjoyed the excitement and rush to get passengers fed and on their way again.

This c1906 postcard shows the kind of historical item you will find at the Toronto Postcard Club show next  February 23rd at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in Don Mills.

Click on the postcard icon to see a large poster advertising the TPC show next February 23, 2020. When Ed Warner and I last attended the show, you could find photographic postcards and actual photographs. Dealers had well organized wares for collectors.

Well worth a visit. You may just find a postcard or photograph that fills a blank in your collection!
