Photographic postcards have been a popular form of communication for nearly a century, and the images Peter Grant has collected provide a fascinating social history of life on Vancouver Island from 1904 to 1918.
The book contains real-photo postcards, most never before published. These pictures were created by artistic photographers, sometimes amateurs, wandering the streets or back country looking for business. The images were often produced by cameras the likes of which have not been seen for ages, and are prized by collectors.
