Postcard Show September 25, 2016


GTR Station Allandale (Barrie) Ontario c1910

Toronto. Our programme chairman, Les Jones, sent me a request to announce the Postcard and Image show coming next month in Dundas, Ontario near Hamilton. A few years back Ed Warner and I attended the Toronto Postcard Club show up at Humber to display some old cameras and answer any questions. I bought a few photo postcards at the show.

Here is the notice from Les Jones for the show next month:

Attention IMAGE DEALERS/Collectors

PHSC members are invited to participate in the next Golden Horseshoe Post Card Club sale, selling vintage images. This will be the first time that anyone other than postcard sellers have been allowed to participate, and there is very limited space.

SUNDAY, September 25, 2016
Dundas Lions Club Memorial Hall
10 Market St South, Dundas. 10am-4pm.

Post Card dealers are being specially asked to bring real photo postcards and any vintage photographs they have acquired. Cost is $80 for 8’ table with a back-up table behind. Application forms are available from Les Jones, 416 691-1555 or

Besides the postcard of the old GTR station with the restaurant staff in white, I bought a couple of other photo postcards of Barrie just past the turn of the 20th century. Come out in September – you may find some images that resonate with your history too!
