Scope and content

Series consists of postcards from British Columbia. The majority of the postcards have images taken by Dorse and/or printed by Dorse, but there are also some printed by Walter Lance, and some that were collected either by Dorse or Walter. Most of the postcards have an identification number on them which seems to be based on the image used and the size of the card. Similarly formatted numbers can be found on some of the items found in the “Prints, negatives, and transparencies” series of this fonds, and it is likely that these correspond to postcards. The series is arranged into files that reflect Walter’s arrangement and labeling of the cards, generally by town or region.
