Scope and content

Advertising material produced by the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC), broadly relating to the Canadian fur trade in the 20th Century.

  • Flyers and brochures advertising firearms, traps and wilderness supplies
  • Advertising material reporting on trends in the fur market, and emphasizing the high prices, good service and favorable terms offered by the HBC for pelts.
  • A coupon for entry into a prize draw; the coupon was meant to be enclosed with a fur shipment to the HBC.
