‘CARD TALK’ is a 24 page ‘magazine’ of stories about vintage postcards contributed by members.  Stories about the history that postcards depict, about the publishers and photographers who created them, stories about the postcards from the ‘Golden Age’ of postcards, and more. Many postcard images are reproduced in these articles. ‘Card Talk‘ is published annually each Spring, Fall and Winter (April, August and November). ‘Card Talk‘ also reports on club activities and meetings and other items of interest to vintage postcard collectors.

  1. 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.
