Halifax Public Libraries Postcard Collection


Halifax Public Libraries has digitized a small collection of postcards that illustrate Halifax Regional Municipality's communities, local historic buildings, and popular public spaces. The postcard collection dates from the early Edwardian period (1900's) to the 1980's.

Postcards were a popular form of correspondence between family and friends travelling in the area and many of these cards have personal notes on the back. To provide a full view of the postcard, the Library has digitized both the front and back.

Postcards are searchable by author, title, subject keyword or location. Names of both the sender and receiver, when available, are also indexed.
