I got some awesome new postcards for Christmas this year. Well, I should say postal cards as they were issued by a postal service, Canada Post.
Here are a couple of my favourites of this batch.
Miss Supertest III was an award-winning powerboat. It won an international prize, the Harmsworth Trophy, for three years (1959-61) and was the first to beat American boats in 39 years. Canada Post and Globe & Mail have more of its history.
Here’s one from Canada Post’s Canadian country singers group:
Here’s Canada Post’s spiel on k.d. lang:
In a career that has spanned nearly 30 years, she has sold millions of records worldwide and won both JUNO and Grammy awards. A recipient of the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award, lang is also an Officer of the Order of Canada.
This information would be great to put on the back. But Canada Post appears to never put anything on the back of their postal cards other than credits. As a collector, I have a constant craving for such information!
Although, Christmas has past – in just a few weeks it’ll be my birthday so maybe there will be more deltiological gifts to come.
