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 company 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 producers. 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 that collectors have long wished for. We would also like to include major real photo postcard photographers in these listings.

Thus far, we have histories of eight companies, including Calgary’s H. Enida Olive Co., Winnipeg’s Consolidated Stationery and a number of Toronto’s leading producers (A. L. Merrill, Phillips & Wrinch, Pugh Manufacturing, Valentine & Sons, Warwick Bros. & Rutter and J. C. Wilson). Anyone with information that is relevant to the history of these companies or other major publishers should feel free to contact us.
