Manufacture Notes
606 Talbot Street, St. Thomas was taken over in late 1927 by the Sutherland Press Ltd., Frederick W. Sutherland, president. From 1928 to 1955, Sutherland Press shared the premises with the St. Thomas Box Co. Ltd. (and in 1929 only with the Lenox Manufacturing Co. Ltd., makers of overalls). From 1957 to 1983, Sutherland Press Ltd. is listed in city directories as the sole occupant of their building. From 1985 to 1993, the property is listed under the business name Loder-Sutherland, printing and advertising. The company printed books, pamphlets, and, for a part of its history, the town's newspaper, now the St. Thomas Times-Journal. The iconic headquarters of The Sutherland Press, Ltd. was one of the biggest and best of its time.
Item History
This pin is from the Jumbo Centennial celebrations that took place in 1985. 1985 marked the hundredth anniversary of Jumbo's death that occured in 1885 in St. Thomas, Ontario.
