Sent back to his mother in Hamilton, Ontario, this postcard was likely purchased at the Banff train station. You can picture him looking out the window at the mountains as he writes this message on the way to Vancouver. The postcard reads:
Oct. 12 / 1926
My Dear Mother, I am now running along the Fraser River. I have just got across the Selkirks and into the coast range. I'll be in Vancouver at 8:30 in the morning. It is now about 7:30.
Affixed with a one cent stamp, the postcard was mailed from Vancouver on October 13, 1926.
