A virtual mini-museum of the halcyon days of the Canadian pencil industry.
I found this collection of vintage red pencils at a second hand shop today. I imagine that this is a from a teacher's collection of checking pencils used for marking papers. Three different red pencils, all with shiny gold imprints from three different Canadian pencil factories. The Berol Canadiana and Dixon Red 2210-R pencils are round and the Venus Handy-Check pencil is hexagonal.
