Cheap and reliable, these missives were often used to set up engagements in just one day. --Due to their compact size, postcards were easy to collect. For David L. Newman of Windsor, Ontario, saving old postcards became a passion. He has devoted the last 23 years building a magnificent collection of his city’s postcards. More than 280 of them are represented here and offer a fascinating glimpse into this region’s rich and colourful history. --Within these pages are a mostly lost world. Pastoral settings, Victorian and Edwardian buildings, idyllic boulevards, ancient automobiles and outdated fashions harken back to “simpler” times. In fact, this book serves as a catalogue of sorts for many fine buildings that fell victim to the wrecker’s ball over the last 100 years. “The Border Cities,” once encompassing Windsor, Walkerville, Ford City (later East Windsor) and Sandwich, are well represented here. --Prepare to travel through time---"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
