A selection of additional pioneer Albertype “Greetings from Quebec” postcards have been added.
A series of updates to the Albertype listings have been added, including creating a new page for postcards from Dawson, Yukon Territories, published for Landahl’s Emporium of Dawson.
A Vancouver card postally used in 1900 has been added to the Albertype pioneer postcard listings, along with some additional page redesign in preparation for some addition al material to be added.
This Albertype postcard showing the Old Clock Tower and Citadel in Halifax is postmarked November 2, 1903 to Nelson, New Zealand, where it was received December 17 with a receiving cancel.
One of my favourite Albertype Company-based local publishers in Landahl’s Emporium
in Dawson, Yukon.
In Dawson, Yukon Territory, Harry Landahl established Landahl’s Emporium at 116 Second Avenue South in late 1904. This was followed by a relocation to 205 King Street into the former location of Smith’s Book Store in 1906. Landahl’s Emporium was the publisher of a wide variety of Dawson postcards printed by The Albertype Co. from about August 1905 through July 1913.
I’ve added seven more cards from Landahl’s Emporium
, including the card pictured here, to the collection. Some of the cards are postally used from one sender (circa 1906) who described the price of meat (“as high as $1.00 per pound” and “Mountain Sheep–which are frozen meat, brought from 50 to 75 cts per pound”) and furs (“These furs and heads are from up the Stewart river and are worth $5000, all belong to the Indian”)
