Here’s another recent arrival from my new postcard pen pal.
It is from a Toronto pub, appropriately named The Pour House:
The sender informed me that this postcard was given with the bill. I have never received a postcard in such a manner – I’d sure like that A LOT more than a crappy candy. I also believe this might be the first giveaway postcard in the Collection from a pub. I have lots from motels and some from restaurants (and most of these are circa 1960 to 1980), but normally booze slinging joints don’t need the postal service to drum up business.
Here’s the flip side:
“Hi Glen! What happened to your blog? You haven’t updated it in a while, I hope everything is all right. Any ways, this card is given to you with the bill at this pub Toronto (Pour House) and I thought you’d appreciate it!”
I love the Ken Dryden stamp too. Canada Post does a great job of commemorating our history and culture on stamps and doing so with attractive illustrations.
