Corporate Seals

This rug is based on the corporate seals used by Vancouver businesses and charities in the hundred years between about 1890 -1990.

Among the seals are those for the municipalities of South Vancouver (incorporated into Vancouver in 1929), Vancouver Lodge No. 10 of the Independent Order of Good Templars (Crusaders for Temperence), and the Vancouver Gas Company
(founded in 1886 with the City itself).

The melange includes imprints of seals of local notaries Edgar Bromfield and Charles Thomas Hilton, and of photographer Leonard Frank who embossed his photographs of spectacular local scenery with his seal.

The rugs are produced by, and available at Burritt Bros. Carpet & Floors
