Vancouver Postcard Club meets Nov 17, 2013 – Christmas theme

Coming up this weekend, Sunday, 17 November 2013 – the Vancouver Postcard Club meeting, starting at 11:30 am at the Hastings Community Centre, Vancouver.

Club member Neil Whaley will present Vancouver Christmas postcards and ephemera.  I’m sure we’ll be seeing some quite unique cards – and I do love ephemera. One of his cards is from 1887 when the City of Vancouver was just a year old. See that card on the Vancouver Postcard Club website.

Here’s a lovely embossed postcard from my own collection showing Santa visiting on Christmas Eve. Mailed in the USA; stamped General Delivery Vancouver BC Jan 1 ? 5 ? 12m, and addressed just to Mr. E. C. Shaughnessy Vancouver B C. (possible Edward Shaughnessy).
