Massive Oddfellows Parade, Sept. 18, 1912, Winnipeg Manitoba

There seems to be a lot of Oddfellows in Winnipeg in 1912, almost as many as on CW !~

I love the first postcard, check out how many people are up there on the roofs !!

These are rare magnificent photo postcards from 1912, hard to find in this condition. They were taken near the Hudson's Bay Company which gained recent fame as having bought out Saks 5th Ave., U.S.A. !! I use a scanner to scan the photos so I get the best in photo quality ! I have a very good collection of photo postcards and rare postcards.

The 4th postcard was sent in the mail, postmarked 1907, to a Miss J Tickson in Lumsden, Sk. Canada

A lot of postcard images were made from Glass "plates", and I have been lucky enough to own a collection of these also.

    So interesting. I had recently heard of the Oddfellows, and am now on the super lookout. I realize I am more and more interested in parade (old) photos. Outfits, the vibe and so on. So much to see and study. Love it!
    Hope you are well Phil!

    One of my old boss's was about to join and become an oddfellow, we made the obligatory comments that he would wear the tasseled hat and ride around in fun cars in parades. I remember him very fondly, and remember what Roycroftbooks above said of his experience. I remember my boss was one of the finest people I ever met in my life. If you did something or he had a complaint he never took it out on his staff, if you went into his office for a meeting, you always left feeling better than you ever had before. He made you feel more important and valuable than he was. He had that magic effect on people, everyone loved him and I was blessed to be in his company, I can only imagine how those oddfellows felt when they met him, he was so simply amazing !!~
