WP1868 WPG - RALPH CONNOR'S CHURCH
Posted September 20, 1905, this card shows a great early image of St. Stephen's Presbyterian (later United) Church, the current-day Elim Chapel. The photographer/publisher of this card is George A. Barrowclough. Located at 546 Portage Avenue, at the SW corner of its intersection with St. Mary's, this church achieved international recognition as the home church of Rev. Dr. Charles William Gordon. Dr. Gordon, under the pen name Ralph Connor, was a highly successful writer - becoming one of the best-selling a…
WP1871 WPG - FREE PRESS BUILDING - NIGHT SCENE
Posted on April 23, 1911 from Montreal to France, this is a picture of the Free Press building - built on 1904 at the SE corner of Portage Avenue and Garry Street. The mailing date was much later than the date the picture was taken. On September 21, 1908, the Winnipeg Post Office opened for business to the immediate left (East) of this building - making it that much older.

Posted to England on December 12, 1905, this card was published by Barrowclough Photo Cards. The location is unidentified. The house has a barn-like structure behind it & no other houses are visible. Likely to be on the outskirts of Winnipeg or another Manitoba city or town. The title of the card is difficult to read, but appears to be "Dead Leaves".

BR0209 BRANDON - CPR STATION
Unposted, this postcard part of a series of Brandon real photo images that were produced in the same general format (positioning of image in roughly 2/3 of the space). No photographer or publisher is noted on these cards, but I believe they were likely produced by G. A. Barrowclough. The script used in the titles seems a close match to that on other postcards attributed to him and they are all printed on the early Velox "Private Post Card" (undivided back) that were favoured by Barrowclough.
MN0951 N.W.T. INDIAN MODE OF TRAVEL
Unposted. Publisher: G. A. Barrowclough, Winnipeg Part of his early lithograph series, this card has survived in almost pristine condition.
