Delta throwback: Stamp lovers

Stamp collecting was said to have the largest following of any hobby in the world
Stamp club president Wilf Newcombe, vice-president Charlie Glushka and secretary-treasurer Jack Millen.

Let’s head back to February 1971 to see members of the Delta Stamp Club checking out a collection of rare stamps during a regular meeting at the Delta Museum in Ladner.

The club met every first and third Wednesday to discuss, compare and exchange stamps.

The club also planned to have periodic displays of stamps at the museum. Also in the planning stages at the time was having a display at the Ladner library.
