The October to December 2014 issue of First Impressions is now available

This issue features three articles including the fourth in a series about the cachets produced by Kelowna’s T.G. Wolstencroft. The number of known cachets by this hitherto unknown maker continues to expand, so John Van der Ven is attempting to keep us up to date. The efforts of the Windermere and District Historical Society to produce and distribute FDCs for the David Thompson issues of 1957 is chronicled by Gary Dickinson, and Bob Vogel reviews letter cards produced by the Folkard Company and used as FDCs.

This will be the last call for expressions of interest regarding the development of a register for earliest known uses of stamp issues that do not have an established first day of issue. Doug Holmes has offered to set this up on the Study Group website, but we need someone to take the leadership to develop and manage a process for reporting these covers.
