KWCRPCC Meetings:

 

Next Meeting: Wednesday, March 6, 2019

Doors open at 6:30 PM

   On Tuesday March 6, KWCR PCC goes a bit local. Two early post card publishers, one from Guelph and one from Berlin (Kitchener) will be spotlighted with many examples of their own unique cards as part of the presentation.

 

Guelph collector and KWCR PCC executive member Cam Shelley introduces Oran Turnbull, certainly a name few people recognize. Turnbull was perhaps the first person to print picture post cards of Guelph. He was an itinerant printer who worked for the Guelph Mercury, then went into business for himself in Guelph before moving on to Toronto and Detroit.  The presentation will sketch his career and his contribution to

the early picture post card trade in the Royal City.

 

 From Berlin, the post cards and career of J. C. Jaimet and Company is the subject that another member of the club executive, rych mills, will focus on. James C. Jaimet took his own photos in the 1911-1914 era and engaged a high-quality British printing firm to produce some of Berlin’s most colourful early post cards.
