• NEXT MEETING: “JOSEPH HECKMAN, CPR PHOTOGRAPHER”

As photographer for the CPR, Joseph Heckman travelled across Canada by train and hand car between 1898 and 1915 shooting images of the fledgling national railway system with his glass plate camera.

POSTCARD PUBLISHER HISTORIES

The TPC, like other Canadian postcard clubs, promotes the study of Canada’s postcard publishers and photographers, including the cataloguing of their work. Information about some of the country’s well-known publishers is found below. The publisher pages below are at various stages of development, and thus far represent just a small (and admittedly arbitrary) selection of large and medium-sized Canadian publishers. We hope to add information on many more publishers in the future, so that this will eventually become the comprehensive online source of basic information about Canada’s postcard publishers that collectors have long wished for. We would also like to include major real photo postcard photographers in these listings.
