I'll be there. While I'm not expecting quite as many finds as last year - 1910s postcards of my mum's home town in Manitoba, including two from relatives - I'll still be happy to spend most of the day looking at postcards, and talking about postcards.

There'll be other postal history items and ephemera there too. And postcard displays. Always a great show. In fact, last year, attendance was so good, the refreshment stand ran out, so get there early!

Back of Nanaimo Natural Gallery postcard:

Dear Aggie, Just a line to say all G.K. Just had a tremendous rainstorm for 2 1/2 days. No trains in or out of Vancouver for 4 days as the tracks are washed away. E. Gelson leaves tomorrow I have asked him to come to see you. he promised to so look out for him. Please send by return Wellcomes Photographic Diary for 1910 as I keep an account of every days work in them. Don't forget. Best love to you Jess and all. Fred. XXX

Do these names - Fred, Aggie, and Jess - or E. Gelson - sound familiar to anyone?

And, there's some information here on the Photographic Memorabilia website about Wellcome's Photographic Diaries.
