    # 1 & 3 should be "Empress Hotel".
    You can still go for afternoon tea, many dress up for the occasion.
    Is there any markings on the back to determine date.

    walksoftly, could they be from the 50's ?
  6. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago
    I would sat that they are from the twenties.
    Are they photo's or postcards, is there anything on the back?

    These cards were photographed by Arthur Lymbery & published by the Gowen, Sutton Company of Vancouver. He started taking photo's around 1930, so that should help date the cards.
