A J.C. Wilson patriotic pioneer postcard mailed to Venice, Italy on January 6, 1900, has been added to the site. The WLS-P08 P-1 card, with a 2¢ QV Numeral stamp, bears a Venice receiving cancel dated January 30, 1900.
I’ve updated the page illustrating J.C. Wilson patriotic postcards with overseas destinations to the current site format, adding additional background to the cards when available.
A section on overseas use of covers from the old web site format has been reimplemented under the current design, with an update added.
This example of a WLS-P05 postcard has been used from Brooklyn, NY, USA to Switzerland, postmarked March 17, 1899.
Another J.C. Wilson Soldiers of the Queen WLS-P09 Type I postcard mailed to France has been added, this time mailed from Hamilton Ontario to Bastia. The card bears a 1¢ QV Numeral stamp cancelled with a Hamilton Flag A cancel, applied over the words “Printed Matter”, with the sender striking out the “Private Post Card” text of the card.
An example of a use of a WLS-P09 Type I postcard has been added, mailed from Montreal on February 24, 1901, to Castres, France.
