Biographical history

Norbert Erasmus Hyacinth Krommer was born in Latvia in 1930 and lived in Lindsay, Ontario. He had two brothers, Sven Krommer (of Austria) and Ivo Krommer. Krommer was a long-time collector of postcards and was a member of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada, the International Philatelic Society of Joint Stamp Issues Collector, and the Monarchist League of Canada. It appears that he may also have been a member of the Meter Stamp Society and the British North America Philatelic Society although this is not confirmed. Krommer died in Lindsay in 2013 at the age of 83.

Custodial history

Collection acquired from the estate of Mr. Norbert Krommer in 2014.

Scope and content

Collection is comprised of approximately 7500 postcards (including some duplicates) pertaining primarily to the former Victoria County (now City of Kawartha Lakes). Dating from about 1900 to 1960, this collection was created by Norbert Erasmus Hyacinth Krommer of Lindsay, Ontario. A few postcards portray photographs of unidentified people, while others include handwritten messages on the reverse along with postal stamps and markings.
