First published in February 2019 as BC Postal History Newsletter Supplement No. 4
This is a report of 100 covers with letters written by Andy Morod to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Dickinson of Bamfield, British Columbia. Morod mailed most of the covers at post offices in the Nootka Sound area: Nootka, Ceepeecee, and Zeballos. These envelopes and their contents present a good look at not only the postal history but also the social and regional history of the northwest coast of Vancouver Island (see the box in the map below) between 1932 and 1964. Keep in mind that he wrote much of this correspondence during the Great Depression of the 1930s, a time of great unemployment on Vancouver Island.
