The Postal History of Port Hood Island

From the mid-1800’s to the mid-1900’s, Port Hood Island was a thriving fishing community on the west coast of Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Canada. A post office was established on the island in 1865 and operated until 1968.

In 2006, I wrote an article on the postal history of this community that was published in the Postal History Society of Canada Journal. A copy of that article can be found here.
