Royal City Greetings: Vintage Postcards of New Westminster

Jim presents a fascinating look at early New Westminster through a special collection of local post cards, recently acquired by the NWHPS.   Some have never been seen before! 

These miniature ‘moments in time’ are a popular collectors’ item. In their heyday, residents and visitors alike eagerly purchased them as souvenirs or as cards to pen quick messages and greetings to friends and family.

Local photographers and stationery shops produced thousands of images of New Westminster’s popular locales and special events in order to fulfill the demands of postcard-crazed Edwardians. 

Today, these surviving post cards transport us back to New Westminster’s formative years when street cars rumbled down Park Row,  Queen’s Park came alive with an annual Provincial Exhibition, and our downtown was crowded with stores and shoppers.
