Item description

We are pleased to offer for your consideration this lovely white border postcard view of the Western Beaches and Sea Cliff Park at Leamington, Ontario, Canada which was published by Valentine-Black Co. Ltd. of Toronto, Canada. Valentine Black Co., Ltd. was in business from 1922 until 1933 and they were published view-cards of Canada. They used a number of different printers, some in the United States. They were not affiliated with Valentine and Sons who also had offices in Canada as well as in numerous other places around the world. Valentine-Black published a set of Postcards known as the Bond Street Series which were a somewhat grainy set of view cards of views from around Ontario and the Lake Erie, Lake Huron and Lake Ontario region of Southern Canada. This particular postcard is a halftone view which is rather grainy and more like a poor water color painting rather than a photographic view of the beach and shore. Leamington, Ontario is a municipality in Essex County, southern Ontario, Canada. It includes Point Pelee, the southernmost point of mainland Canada. It has a large H. J. Heinz Company factory and is known as the "Tomato Capital of Canada", with a square mile of this crop in the vicinity. It also lays claim to being the "Sun Parlour" of Canada due to its southern location. Seacliff Park is located along the shore of Lake Huron, very close to point Pelee, which can be actually seen from the beach at Seacliff. The front of this card features a view of the park, looking southeast toward Point Pelee, which would be off picture to the right in this view. There is a narrow, sandy beach lined with tiny cottages and benches for beach goers to rest upon. the surf of Lake Huron gently laps up onto the beach beneath a blue sky speckled with puffy white clouds. The bottom center bears the inscription, "Western Beaches and Sea-Cliff Park, Leamington, Ont." and at the bottom right corner is the V-B ware number, L10. The back is a divided back postcard with the publisher's info along the left hand margin and the "VB" Logo and "Bond Street Series" logo at the top of the division. This card is in Good condition with a crease across the center of the card and a bump on the upper left corner. this card was never used in the mail and bears no writing upon it, anywhere. This card will be a nice addition to your collection of Canadian views of Lake Huron, views of the Great Lakes region, views of Ontario and postcards by Valentine-Black.
