One of my most sought after cards from Bulman Bros. is a card showing an image of Major Harry Arnold, Captain, Western Company, Canadian Contingent, from the Boer War, together with a vignette of the streets of Winnipeg thronging with people seeing off the “Transvaal Contingent” in their farewell to Manitoba.

While I’ve seen the card for sale, I haven’t been successful in acquiring it. An image of the card from an eBay auction is shown at right.

You can see more postcards by Bulman Bros. & Co. in the Peel’s Prairie Postcards Collection, an image archive of over 15,000 postcards dating back to the turn of the 19th century held at the University of Alberta.
