I wanted to share a family heirloom, a roll of gummed paper packing tape from my Great Grandfather’s General Store in Hardisty, Alberta. It dates from about the depression (not the current one, I mean about 1932-33), and is slightly stuck together from the gum, but I’ve unrolled a little as you see.

Nice phone numbers, back then!

    Neat stuff! I love the telephone number. When you think about it, remember when we had only 7 without the area code?
