Overview

After the so-called golden age of postcards, the fancy and patriotic cards previously produced in large volume began to be replaced by others with more realistic, timely themes. Photographic postcards became the fashion as people became enamored with their ability to capture images of local events. In Saint John, local photographers began producing photographic postcards of parades, sporting events, and royal visits. Saint John: More Postcard Memories focuses on the years from 1915 to 1950, taking the reader through the city's history as it developed after the golden age. Over 200 images contained in this book show the full variety and experience of life in Saint John—we observe everything from playground scenes to parades, and from formal dedications to times of war. These richly varied postcards will stimulate the memories of some of the city's senior citizens and will give younger residents a glimpse of times gone by.\
