According to BNA Topics (Vol 42; 1985), “The Official Journal of the British North America Philatelic Society,” this postcard was one of a series produced between 1909-12 by Birn Bros., a London (England) postcard publisher. This card was postmarked Dec 18, 1909 in Vancouver, BC. The coat of arms on the card was not, evidently, the official provincial heraldry. In fact, the history of the creation of an official B.C. coat of arms is quite involved.
