Postcard Memories! (with scans)

Wed May 08, 2019 8:53 am

I came across a box of postcards that brought back memories of a time as a kid I would write to airlines asking for pictures and brochures.

Nordair…flew from Montreal to Frobisher Bay YFB (now Iqaluit, Nunavut) and into Canada’s high Artic regions. They sent me this postcard and on the back noted ‘under separate cover’……I had to ask Mom what that meant and a couple of days later a mailing tube arrived with a large poster of the L1049H Super Constellation. It promptly went up on my bedroom wall!



Quebecair…..served the mining area and hydro-electric developments of eastern Quebec and Labrador. They sent me a nice set cards of their fleet. The timetable they sent is long gone so here’s a link to one from that era on the ‘Timetable Images’ site:





And a sad memory:

Just days after I received a package from Eastern Provincial Airways in March 1965…they lost a “Dart Herald’ shortly after departing Halifax. It was operating Flight 102 (timetable below) and on the way from Moncton, New Brunswick to St. John’s, Newfoundland. A real ‘Milk Run’ with seven intermediate stops. Flight 102 had also stopped at our small local airport: New Glasgow NS (Trenton YTN) ... 19650317-2
