Picture It: Dundas Street in Postcards

Imagine - horsedrawn vehicles and streetcars, hotels such as the Belvedere, restaurants such as Campbell's and the Talbot Square - all along Dundas in times past.  These are all brought back to life through a postcard display in the London Room organized by Gord McDonald, a member of the London  District Postcard Club.   In 1992, Dan Brock, another club member, had published a collection of local postcards entitled, Best Wishes from London, Canada:   Our Golden Age of Postcards, 1903-1914.
