General note

Description on rear of postcard reads: THE WORLD FAMOUS DIONNE QUINTUPLETS North Bay, Ontario, Canada. The home and birthplace of the five famous Dionne Quintuplets may be seen at Pinewood Park on Hwy. 11 between Callander and North Bay, Ontario. Many memories of teh babies are on display including hundreds of photographs and their original clothing and toys.

Although this card uses an image of the Dionne quintuplets ca. 1936 and copyrighted 1938, the reverse side description notes that the Dionne home is located at Pinewood Park, which means the card was issued much later.

Script of description


Gord Young, "Preserve home - surviving quintuplets," The Nugget (online), 20 October 2016,
indicates: "The farmhouse was originally located in Corbeil, although it operated as a museum for some time under private ownership at the Pinewood Park Motor Inn in the city's south end.
The city bought the museum from the private owner for $190,000 in 1985, at which time it was relocated to the site of the regional tourist information centre on Seymour Street and began operating under an agreement with the chamber.
