Description

Before email, before Instagram and selfies, postcards were mailed across the world. At the turn of the 20th century, travellers to Winnipeg were impressed by the city's stately architecture, its broad streets, and its tranquil parks. Hand-tinted postcards expressed the vibrancy and optimism felt by visitors to Manitoba. Dreamlike and evocative, these vintage postcards are truly works of art.

If you are coming into one of our stores, we suggest that you confirm that the book you want is in stock by emailing the location nearest you: Grant Park, Saskatoon, or by phoning the location nearest you.
