A Smiths Falls, Ontario Patriotic Postcard

October 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Canadian patriotic postcards tend to be more localized and — in many instances — more imaginative and flamboyant than their American counterparts. This scarce unused and undivided-back c. 1901-1907 patriotic postcard offering greetings from Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada is an example of the small-town localization often seem in Canadian patriotics. This desirable Lanark County collectible is in excellent condition.

Canadian Patriotic Postcard from Smiths Falls, Ontario

Two authoritative Canadian patriotic postcard checklists have been published While both are out of print, they can be found from time to time in online bookstores. W. L. (Wally) Gutzman’s The Canadian Patriotic Post Card Handbook, 1904-1914, was published by the British North America Philatelic Society in 1984, and contains many postcard images not seen in Michael J. Smith’s The Canadian Patriotic Postcard Checklist, 1898-1928, which was published in 2003. Both books are worth including in any postcard reference library.
