The Next Postcard Instalment
As you browse through these cards, you may notice that the colour varies from a greyish to yellowish cast. The former results from natural lighting, the latter from indoor lighting. Most of the original whiteness is now a muted, pale ivory which in my opinion, serves to enhance the effect of age and nostalgia.
I've limited my efforts to Canadian images thus far, but have numerous cards with US and European scenes also and will probably add them in due course, in their own section.
I have also added a slideshow at the bottom of this page. Enjoy!
