ESC OUR STORY

 

The world’s first postage stamp, England’s famous Queen Victoria Penny Black, appeared in May, 1840.  Stamp collecting started the very next day and swept the world, touching down in Edmonton, Alberta in 1912 when a group of stalwarts met to form the Edmonton Stamp Collector’s Club.  Edmonton’s two newspapers featured stamp columns and several downtown stamp shops became gathering places for keen collectors.
The Edmonton Stamp Club grew from its dozen male members to an enthusiastic group of over 500 stamp families who have met continuously for over 100 years to buy, sell, trade and learn about stamps. In early days, the Club met in Edmonton’s downtown Library. The current Monday meeting place is the St. Joe’s High School cafeteria which is in keeping with the friendly, family nature of the Club.  New members and visitors are always welcome to share in the evening’s fun and fellowship……..
