Post Offices …

An interesting article on our Island Post Offices and very worth a Google is Andrew Scott’s “Early Postal History of B.C.’s Haida Gwaii”.

Skidegate Landing had the first post office named Skidegate from 1897 to 1971. Queen Charlotte City was next, with 2 others, Jedway and Lockport, opening in 1909.

Some early postcard photos and stamps as shown as well.
