  1. I have a wonderful card with folding pictures of Banff yet the cover says Greetings from Regina Sask fun stuff multiple photos of Banff area

    • That’s fun! Ah yes, the misprint or print error. They do exist; things like a wrong trim, colour register errors and incorrect spelling or titles that don’t match the view. eBay has almost 100 offerings of this type at the moment. By the way, we call those waterfall foldout views a postcard ‘folder’. Not to be confused with a booklet which is several postcards attached together, usually on the left side, and often perforated to facilitate being torn out to use.

  2. Years ago, I used to be an avid collector, and a member of the TPC. On the occassion of the 10th Anniversary of the Toronto Post Card Club in 1977 I produced a video dedicated to the activities of our club. Some of you may have a copy of this CD.

    I want to invite you to view it on YouTube, where is appears under the heading The Toronto Post Card Club, 10th Anniversary. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkxbSuWAmPQ&feature=related
    There are 6 segments posted there, and you will see most of our old club founding members there. I am releasing it in commemoration of our past president Wilf Cowin.

    Please come & reminisce.
