About this Item
Great Plains Publications
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.
