The Gowen Sutton Co. Ltd was started by Canadian wilderness photographer Frank Gowen in 1919, and operated under the Gowen Sutton name from 1921-1960 and was a publisher of real photo and printed postcards of the Canadian West. Not only did they produce cards depicting large cities, they captued many hard to reach views within the Canadian Territories. Many of their cards were hand tinted in a simple manner, making each very different. While the real photo cards were made in Canada their printed cards were made in England.
