Canada, Fall 2013

I haven't been as active lately with my postcard exchanges but recently traded with folks in Canada. Here are cards celebrating historic Northwest Coast Village life and modern pow wow dancing:

This photo of a Kwagiulth village was taken by CF Newcombe (1900) and features  an impressive painted clan house known as the Sea Monster House which belonged to John Scow . It would have been seen by anyone traveling along the coastline. This photo also shows the transition between native made wood plank building and European style construction.

Less information is available on this card but it was printed in Edmonton, Alberta and the young man is likely from that area.
