Item description

We are happy to offer for your consideration this black and white, Real Photo Post Card (RPPC) view of the Barrack Gate in KIngston, Ont. Canada, published by the Mahood Brothers of Kingston, Ont., Canada. I was unable to determine anything about the Mahood Brothers. The Barracks Gate is part of historic Fort Henry, a National Historic Site. Fort Henry is located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada on Point Henry, a strategic point located near the mouth of the Cataraqui River where it flows into the St. Lawrence River, at the upper end of the Thousand Islands. The original fort was constructed during the War of 1812, when present-day Ontario was a British colony known as Upper Canada. The fort was constructed on the high ground of Point Henry to protect the Kingston Royal Naval Dockyard (the site of the present-day Royal Military College of Canada) from a possible United States attack. The fort also monitored maritime traffic on the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario, as the loss of this vital shipping route would have cut off supplies to Kingston and the rest of Upper Canada. The present Fort Henry was constructed between 1832 and 1837 to protect the Lake Ontario end of the Rideau Canal. The Barracks gate was the main entrance for the public and for ceremonial parade. Today, It has been reopened as a living museum with the introduction of the Fort Henry Guard, and was opened on August 1, 1938 as such. The present Fort Henry Guard is entirely a group of non-military school age people who have no formal ties to the Canadian Forces. Historical reenactment events are presented from May to October. The front bears a real photo in black and white of the gate with the Fort Henry Guard performing their marching maneuvers through and around the gate. At the top, in red is the caption, "Barrack Gate, Kingston, Canada". The back is an Early Divided Back postcard with 2/3 of the area devoted to the address and only 1/3 for a message, the publisher's info is at the top under the words, "POST CARD". The left margin bears Mahood's ware number, "732 A/84". This card is unused and in excellent condition with only the top two corners having a tiny bit of surface exfoliation. The rest of the card is in pristine condition. This card will look great in your collection of Canadian postcards, Cards of views of Ontario, Kingston, and Early Divided back era postcards.
