A Canadian Harvesting Scene, Cutting the Wheat

A Canadian Harvesting Scene, Cutting the Wheat
This card was postmarked on August 24, 1927 at Fort William, Ont. (now part of Thunder Bay). It is addressed to Simeon Régnier, L'Acadie, Comté St-Jean, P. Q. and has a short message in French that is hard to read but is from Mr. Régnier's son. The numbering on the front of the card suggests that it was originally produced around 1908-10 by Valentine & Sons (no. 105,276) but in fact this particular printing of the card is likely a late reprint from the 1920s as it is identified on the reverse as having been published by Valentine Edy Co. of Winnipeg (one of the several North American Valentine subsidiaries that became independent of the Scottish parent company in the 1920s). It is noteworthy for showing a "Deering" plough (if that's what that is).
