Postcards from Amor

The man who changed his name. Born William Smith in Nova Scotia. Influenced by the speeches of Joseph Howe as a young man. Amor was to travel from N.Y.C. to California. Abandoning the comparative safety of the wagon trains heading west in search of gold. Bill, as he was then known, bought an early daguerreotype camera and tripod and travelled the rest of that dangerous journey across the desert, alone on horseback. Arriving in California he opted to change his name to Amor de Cosmos. (Lover of the Universe). To separate himself from the rest of his name-a-likes. He was later to become 2nd premier of British Columbia, founded the first newspaper, The Daily Colonist and also championed local train transportation. And that was just the beginning. Acknowledged by many of his peer group as the true  ‘Godfather of Confederation’. He was ridiculed and outlawed for his challenging politics. Now in 2023, having died more than 100 years ago, his visitation amongst us, then leaving an instagram postcard as a souvenir of his presence, have the ring of a real ghost story.
