6799. National Patriotic Parade, July 1st, 1915

6799. National Patriotic Parade, July 1st, 1915
A group in some sort of ethnic dress.

No. 55 in the Charles A. Meyers series.

This one was used. Postmarked August 23, 1915 to Miss R. Barr, Box 61, Sudbury, Ont.: "Dear Rosie, Just arrived at Winnipeg 2 clock Monday afternoon. Leaving here 11'clock tonight. Hoping you are well will write soon with love from Alf."

Interesting that someone would have bought this card -- which depicts an event nearly two months before -- immediately on arriving in the city. So presumably Meyers had an outlet for the public sale of his postcards at or near one of the train stations. Note that my copy of card 39 in the series was posted just four days later (Aug. 27) by someone who'd also just arrived in the city. www.ipernity.com/doc/wintorbos/31336535//in/album/880636
