I've put my collection of Canadian WWI Civil Censorship covers up on the web at http://www.bebstuff.com/stamps/Collection.php. I am also in the process of putting my Admiral Rates and Usages, the pages for which will grow slowly over time. I hope there are a few here who might enjoy this collection, and maybe can answer one or two of my questions!

Very nice.
I especially like the Britannia Beach to Brooklyn, NY cover as its fairly close to Squamish where I live.

Nice site Bboelke and nice covers too.

Would I be correct in assuming you have the book "Civil Censorship In Canada During World War 1" by Allan L. Steinhart??

Yes, I do (it is actually mentioned on the site). Do you collect this area as well?

Actually, yes, I do.

One of my main interests is Canadian military mail and civil censored covers as well.

I collect them from all eras and over the years have accumulated a fair sized collection.

Nice to meet you! I'll be adding a couple of covers I've added to the collection in the near future, once I resolve some issues with my new laptop not liking my old scanner...

re: Civil Censorship in Canada during World War I

This is a new cover I just picked up, and it presents a bit of dilemna. The strike date is July 25, 1916, which is outside of any recorded period of Civil Censorship. The cover shows absolutely no sign of being a re-used envelope. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

The tape is also clearly a Steinhart Type II, with no other markings. The cover shows absolutely no sign of being a re-used envelope. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

re: Civil Censorship in Canada during World War I

Just an update on the cover shown above. After discussing the cover with numerous knowledgeable collectors, the conclusion was that the cover was mailed by a "Person of Interest", most likely an internee being held in Halifax. It is, as every collector loves to hear, a rare example of censorship outside of the known dates.

Was there any sort of return address on the back or a name? Also was the hotel used to house internees? Just curious.
Great info on the cover.

There is nothing on the reverse except an advertising message. I don't know specifically this hotel was used but it fits the presumption. I was hoping they might still be around, but it burned down horrifically decades ago.

Thanks! I've just posted three additional covers, one with an unusual destination (Balboa Heights, Canal Zone). For anyone interested, here is the reverse of the "Persons of Interest" cover.
