Antique Letterboxes
Tony Shaman

When the two young, Edwardian ladies pictured in Kathryn Hansuld Lamb's book, The Quiet Hobby, deposited a letter into a King Street, Berlin, Ontario, (now Kitchener), street letter box in 1912 they could not have imagined that the little, red mail box would some day become a sought-after collectible item. Although these particular types of street letter boxes were fastened to lamp or hydro poles, much as some are even today, their predecessors known as pillar boxes, dating from the 1850s, were stand-alone models that measured...

Ice Spearfishing Decoys Joe Fossey
Recent historical interest, influenced primarily by Sporting Collectors, Antique Dealers and Interior Decorating trends has sparked a revival in the reproduction and collecting of wooden pioneer Ice Spear fishing decoys. They are without doubt, a truly unique North American folk art subject. Their sizes range from a tiny 1 inch minnow length to a massive 50 inch Sturgeon replica used to determine the minimum legal length spearing size.

Fish Decoys were used by native and early North American ice fishermen to lure food fish within reach of their spears. The decoys were all hand made, primitive by design and function due to then limited education, lack of regional communication and the general absence of quality wood working tools that are commonly available today. There are considerable differences in primary design and painting colours, which is influenced by various regions involved and the species needs of the original carvers.

The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash

The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca ColaŽ and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...

Collecting Antique Fishing Tackle Jim Greenway Over the past few decades, the collecting of fishing tackle has grown in popularity. Years ago, I could obtain a tackle box full of lures and bobbers at an auction with a bid of $20.00 to $30.00. A similar box today will sometimes cost me considerably more, especially if there is a certain bait sitting in one of the trays and definitely more if there are a couple of other collectors in the room. Back in the early 80s I would look at the people I was bidding against and we would have a lot in common: we would be about the same age and have similar interests such as cottages, boating, and fishing. This is not always true today as we have lots of young people collecting tackle; it is not just a hobby for the 50 and over club. read more about Collecting Antique Fishing Tackle on ' Your Antiques Canada Connection '.
