About the Book
With a collector’s eye trained to uncover the rare, the unusual and the finest examples of British Columbia’s antique postcards, authors Fred Thirkell and Bob Scullion have given readers an eclectic array of century-old photographs.
The images selected for this book—the authors’ fifth for Heritage House—tell 80 distinct stories that capture British Columbia as it once was. Given the tremendous popularity of postcards in that era, these images no doubt took BC’s raw beauty and frontier appeal out into the world, attracting an endless parade of tourists and immigrants to the province.
