The postcards of W.G. MacFarlane are extensively catalogued in the second edition of “The W.G. MacFarlane Picture Postcard Handbook, 1910-1910” by Michael J. Smith, a book that is essential for the collector of this prolific Canadian postcard publisher. The series numbers shown relate to Mike Smith’s book.
Series 8A shows a coloured Yukon crest, embossed. The earliest recorded postmark is noted by Mike as August 5, 1904, although the Skagway card shown here has a date of June 18, 1904. Mike Smith has recorded 8 cards in this series.
Cards from this series come with a W.G. MacFarlane publisher’s attribution, and none have appeared as numbered cards.
