Here's a little collection of vintage packaging — all of it from Canada — that I've picked up in the neighbourhood. Some beautiful examples of hand rendered and hand set type.

This is an amazing repair kit package (I'd say late 1930s, early 40s) issued by the iconic Canadian company Canadian Tire. I found this in an old auto garage that was changing hands and clearing out their very old inventory. I love how the package states it's for use on among other things, hot water bottles and football bladders. Back in the day if your football or hot water bottle sprang a leak you fixed it. Today? The rubber patch is still inside the box.
