Tuck Postcards of Nova Scotia


During November 2011 the PhotoGallery features thirteen postcards of southwestern Nova Scotia that were published more than a century ago by Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd., Fine Art & Book Publishers, Raphael House, London. The postcard images, with production details, can be found in the TuckDB online database, which currently has 104,573 uploaded pictures of Tuck postcards. Of them 1,955 are of Canada, 29 of Nova Scotia, eleven of Yarmouth, ten of Springhill, six of Lunenburg, and (ta da!) one of Port Maitland.

Below are the postcard images of the Nova Scotia coat of arms, and of the Port Maitland and Yarmouth postcards. The title of each image gives the card title, the set (or card) number, and the first date used.

I applaud TuckDB for making high-resolution images of Tuck postcards available for use under a Creative Commons license (CC BY–SA 3.0).
