TWO FINE PHOTOS BELOW FOR SOTHEBY’S CANADA AND SALES REPRESENTATIVE, KIMBERLEY EXEARD.

PHOTO ABOVE – This one is a classic. Santa and his helpers are busy everywhere these days – on Trans Canada Airlines for instance. This T.C. plane is about to leave with Santa on board, flying from Toronto to Winnipeg, the first consigned airmail delivery on that route, which took place in 1939. – kimberleyezeard.com. PHOTO ABOVE – In the good old days, December, 1944, a Milk Man made deliveries in heavy snow, making use of a dog sled for plowing through The Toronto Islands. This photo arrived in my letter box yesterday afternoon, so it’s something new.  A beautiful picture – and a pleasant surprise.
