Description Black and white postcard of Jubilee Park (where the VIA Rail Train station is currently). The postcard shows freight trains in the foreground (one with Grand Trunk written on it). Just past the trains is Jubilee park with a pathway that splits apart at one point and joins up again at the other end. There are some benches along the path and by the gate at one end there seems to be a gazebo or stage of some sort. In the background is Carden street and Wyndham street showing several buildings. The Bell Organ factory is to the right, City Hall with the tower to the left and the King Edward Hotel in the centre. In the very back, Church of Our Lady, without the spires is visible as well as Central School. The back of the postcard is divided but thew sender wrote the message across the whole back. The postcard is published by A.B. Petrie, Guelph.
On front "Jubilee Park, Guelph, Ont." On back "We have a swell new armoury but there are no views of it out yet at least I have not seen any when they come out I will send you one."
