Club Meetings

Club meetings are held mostly every month from 7:00pm. The first half hour is for the exchange of postcard chat and a free coffee. A presentation of interest to history buffs and postcard collectors follows, or, we have a show and tell exchange about a select postcard topic. Visitors are welcome.

    MacFarlane was first out of the block in early 1908 [see his ad in the Bookseller & Stationer], the others followed later in 1908 and continued into 1909.

    MacFarlane may seem to be late to the game because of fewer samples, but keep in mind that his company went under in late 1908, hence seemingly fewer cards from him.

    I twigged to your article while researching something else, and this hit came up.
