I attended the 2015 Vancouver Airline & Aviation Collectibles Show in Richmond, BC. on Saturday, October 24, 2015 hosted by Henry Tenby. It was a great show with lots of interesting memorabilia. While there I met Patricia and Mark Wickson manning a table full of older aviation magazines. What drew my attention was the variety and age of some of the magazines on display. Some went back to 1932!
Marks father (now in his 90's) has been collecting these magazines since he was 12 years old and has recently downsized in order to move into a smaller condo.
There was one copy of The Aeroplane from 1937 that stood out as this was the year that Trans-Canada Air Lines came into being.
Mark and Patricia are interested in finding a good home for the collection, and would prefer to sell the whole lot together or all issues of a magazine together. They have a total of 87 banker size boxes of magazines.
Most publications are related to models (Aero Modeller 1942 - 1979, Model Airplane News 1932 - 1972) and/or Aviation related - (The Aeroplane - 1934 - 2013, Air Classics 1967 - 1994) as well as many more titles as well.
