Postcard of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Cleaning out some photographs (the 4×6″ kind I used to get doubles of with my LD key) and, gasp, actually throwing heaps away, I came across some more old postcards. This unused one included. Although there is a tape mark on the back, so it was used by someone for something once upon a time.
Status: Just newly found, it will find space amongst the ephemera. As an aside, a very old black and white photograph I have of Mt. Gass has gone missing. I am amazed how much I miss it.

Alt Title: The Lonely Untitled RCMP Officer No. 159
the Twentieth Century belongs to you and me
Let us be two severe giants not less lonely for our partnership,
who discolour test tubes in the halls of Science,
who turn up unwelcome at every World’s Fair,
heavy with proverbs and corrections,
confusing the star-dazed tourists
with our incomparable sense of loss
