Incidental 1930s Brewing Letterhead Images


Now there’s a sexy title for a blog post. A real whooah-ish search engine optimization blog post title. Letterhead Pr0n. I should have paid more attention to the lighting when I was at the archives last week with Jordan in Ottawa. But, still, these are pretty sweet. It is amazing how elaborate the Taylor and Bates letterhead is. Rich old guys in suits drinking beer and having the time of their lives because they own a brewery and a radio station.

    Here’s a 1939 appellate ruling on the quality of McNeff’s hops.

    There is a picture of the building of May’s, hop merchants, in this article.

    so did Taylor and Bates also own a radio station?

    Yes, it’s referenced up there in the upper right of the letterhead, CKTB radio. It still exists or at least the call sign lives on.

    Great images! Though the Carling image dates from the 1930s, for me it conjures up memories of O’Keefe’s Extra Old Stock ads on Hockey Night in Canada in the 70s.
