The Canadian Tire Corp. has quite a history. They began in the early 1920s as (obviously) a tire sales outlet. They soon expanded into auto parts and then grew a chain of gas stations. They continued to grow adding appliances, hardware, sporting goods, clothing, home and appliance repair parts catering to the DIY clientele. They even added credit card services. Today they remain in business and are one of Canada's largest retailers. During the heyday of tube type equipment they had a line of tubes private labeled for them.|
Note the blacked out half-keystone area under the Special Notice. Beneath the black-out ink you can make out the word Patents and some numbers. Wonder what that's all about!
This is three views of one of the box styles. I'm not sure how many different styles there were.
