Canada to their website. I do not know if everyone can access it or if you
need a subscription. I searched on "Calgary" and came up with 155 cards to
view. There are many historical buildings shown, long-gone hotels, schools,
offices, churches. I was able to capture an image of the Scarboro United
Church, where my parents were married.
Go to Ancestry.ca and click on the Search tab. Under Search Titles and pick
Card Catalogue, then enter "postcards" for a title and click on Search.
This should bring up a match of Canada Historical Postcards. Click on that
link To get to the Canada Historical Postcards page, where you can now enter
in keywords, such as your city of interest or building or sport or event or
whatever. Have fun.
