Highlights from the collection
Str "Toronto", St. Lawrence River Details
Each of these images is slightly wider than the standard postcard dimensions and were produced in the era just before the authorization of the private postcard when demand for mechanically reproduced coloured images exploded.
Str "New York", Thousand Islands Details
These "photochrom" or "chromolithograph" pictures are all the product of the Detroit Photographic Company, a early adopter of a Swiss technology for mass producing colour images coloured from black and white photographic originals.
