The Perth Historical Society Presents:

Postcards of Old Perth & Area III

As mentioned in the earlier postcard series on this site, postcards have become an important record of Canada's history, from their original purpose of fast, and inexpensive, communication. The postcard era, which commenced in the 1870s, had its 'Golden Age' between 1907 and 1915. The study of these - deltiology - and their collection and display - have become a major hobby and industry.

Thank you to Linda Davies for providing this series.
